  • Use your favorite recipe or box mix vanilla flavor

FOR THE FROSTING:

  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 cups powdered confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream

Instructions

  • Bake according the the recipe, or directions on the back of the box.

FOR THE CINNAMON MAPLE BROWN SUGAR FROSTING:

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter.
  • Add in the cinnamon, maple syrup and brown sugar. Mix until combined and the mix is lighter and fluffy.
  • Slowly add in the confectioners/powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing in between each addition.
  • Once everything is combined thoroughly, slowly add in the milk, mixing well. The frosting should come together after mixing. It is not soft, but not stiff either.
