for those who are not big on sweets, i didn't have powdered sugar so i swapped it with dark brown sugar and it kept a bit of the sour creeam cheese flavor and matched the maple. no problems with clumps either

I used this frosting with Martha's spicy pumpkin bundt cake and it was perfect! I agree, very good with any spiced cake. Thinking about trying it with a spicy apple cake. It might be an overload of fall flavors or it might be fabulous...I'm hoping for the latter!

Great frosting. I put it on yellow butter cream cup cakes. I only put 1/2 teaspoon of the maple syrup. Delish!

The frosting was most excellent! I loved the hint of the maple syrup. I used organic syrup so it wasnt an overpowering sweetness, it was just perfect. i added too much vanilla extract, so i just added a few more spoonfulls of cream cheese. Definately a keeper, good to top off any spiced baked good.

This frosting is yummy. I left out the maple syrup so it would be a little less sweet.
