This intensely flavored maple-syrup frosting is a natural pairing with apple cupcakes but would add a hint of fall to almost any sweet.

Game plan: To revive the chilled frosting, let it come to room temperature, place it in the bowl of a stand mixer, and whip with a whisk attachment until light in color, fluffy, and fully incorporated.


  1. 1Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer fitter with a whisk attachment and beat on low speed until syrup and sugar are incorporated, about 1 minute.
  2. 2Increase speed to high and beat until mixture is light and whipped, about 5 minutes. Use immediately to frost cupcakes, cakes, or cookies. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container.
