Cook's Notes

This frosting can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Before using, bring to room temperature and beat with a hand whisk or the whisk attachment of an electric mixer for several minutes to restore the fluffiness.

    This recipe is exactly like the other Maple Buttercream recipe on the site doubled. Very easy to make, smooth to spread. It does feel a bit greasy if you spread immediately after whipping it up, but it firms up in the fridge. I used it for my daughter's birthday cake and everyone loved it. It has a very distinct maple sweetness w/out being overly sweet like some frosting w/powdered sugar. I personally like Swiss Meringue Buttercream, but it is "too adult" and subtle for my 4 year old daughter.
