    MizzNezz's Note:

    This is an excellent frosting for most any cake! But my granddaughter always wants it on a chocolate cake!! Very easy to make.

      There was plenty of icing left over with this recipe. I cannot describe in writing how yummy this was. Just trust me. I used this frosting with Inez's Old Fashioned Spice Cake #41292. It is a perfect marriage of frosting and cake. I love the maple flavouring in the icing. Thank you Inez. I think that this icing is a real winner. By the way, it is funny that you mentioned that your granddaughter likes this icing with Chocolate cake because my daughter commented that she would like to try your chocolate cake with this icing. Hmm I wonder if this is girl thing. ;-)

      Excellent! I love homemade frosting and once you taste this, you'll realize that canned frosting is nothing like the real thing. Rich, with wonderful caramel flavor and a fudgy texture. Enough for my 13 x 9 cake, but I would probably increase the amount for a layer cake since I hate to get caught short with frosting. Used mine with a chocolate cake. Only change I'd make would be to reduce the powdered sugar. I used about 3 1/2 cups, and my frosting was very thick. Next time I'd start with 3 cups. Thanks, MizzNezz, for another wonderful recipe!

      This was really good - but I found that 4 cups of confec. sugar was way too much - I had to add about 1/4 cup of milk to get it to become less brick like! Thanks for sharing!
