Maple Walnut Frosting

4

"This is a good cake frosting, and is especially good when the maple syrup can be purchased in March. You can use the artificial for those of you who do not live in the north, or cannot obtain it. This recipe will fill and frost a 9 inch cake."

This was good but a little sticky rather than peaky. I doubled the cream of tarter and that helped it peak more. I also removed it from the double boiler once everything was thickening up. I ...

Very tasty! I'm waiting to put it on the brown sugar brownies that are cooking and I can't stop eating it. It has a nice, light flavor.
