Instructions Checklist
  • Place the bowl and whisk attachment of an electric mixer in freezer until chilled, about 30 minutes.

  • Place heavy cream and maple syrup in chilled bowl and attach to electric mixer along with the chilled whisk attachment; beat cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold in crushed puff candy until just combined; do not overmix.

  • Place bottom half of cake on a cake plate, cut-side up. Spread enough of the whipped cream mixture over cut side to make a 1-inch-thick filling; top with remaining half of cake, cut-side down.

  • Generously frost entire cake with remaining whipped cream mixture. Sprinkle top with crushed maple cookies, allowing some to drop down the sides. Transfer cake to refrigerator; chill until whipped cream is set. Cake is best served the day it is made.

If you have to send for the puff candy and cookie buttons, you will be spending a fortune. Everything from Vermont country store is outrageously expensive. I would just sub Heath bars and make some crisp cookies with maple extract. Much more budget conscious and tastes just as good.

Just noticed a few of you ladies are wondering where you can buy puff candy and orton brothers maple cookie buttons: they are all sold at the vermont country store's online catalog. The cake is lovely, light and not too sweet! Hope you enjoy it!

Cindyccm, I thought of Heath Bars and sugar cookies. Would be different but probably good! The puff candy and maple cookie buttons can be found on The Vermont Store's website.

Martha, please help. I would like to make this cake for my Ladies Christmas luncheon on Dec. 8. I have no idea what chocolate covered puff candies are. Would it be malted milk balls???? Also, not sure about the maple cookie buttons? What exactly are they and where do I buy them. I live in eastern Ohio. Thanks for your help.

Cchurella, I have the same idea. I know there are maple cream cookies available at the local supermarket which could work. I was thinking maybe Heath bar candy chopped up would be good. Not sure about a puff candy substitute, unless something like 3 Musketeers?

I have not made this (yet) but it sounds incredible. My problem is the cost of the chocolate covered puff candy and the cookies. I have recently been laid off and can't justify the expense of making this. What would be good substitutions for the candy and cookies to still get the impact of the maple flavors?
