Craving a maple bar?

My husband wants me to make a cake!

I used to do it quite frequently when we were first married...but haven't in quite awhile now :)

Anyway, he just has to have that scrumptious maple flavor you get at the doughnut stores...and I found the most perfect recipe in an unusual place:

Parenting: Babies & Toddlers

But what's a husband besides a big baby anyway?


This frosting makes a great topping to maple cupcakes or any cake. Use it to add a fall touch to your desserts.

• 3 tablespoons maple syrup
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
• 2 tablespoons butter, softened

Blend all ingredients except powdered sugar until well blended.
Blend in powdered sugar until mixture reaches the consistency of frosting.
If mix is too dry or thick, add a small amount of softened butter until consistency is correct.

If mix is too wet or runny, add more powdered sugar.
