Maple Butter Frosting

This frosting is the perfect finish for Mother-in-law cake. It's also a tasty and slightly different frosting for other fruit-flavored or white cakes. Please use real maple syrup; artificial maple syrup (pancake syrup) is a waste of time and calories!


Blend butter or shortening and sugar in mixer or food processor. Add vanilla and maple syrup, and beat until very smooth. Spread on Mother-in-law cake. It also frosts 2 layers or one 13x9 oblong cake.
