Maple Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup/stick room temp unsalted butter

That’s it!

Recipe Instructions:

This fall flavored frosting recipe also only takes ten minutes to make.

To begin, add your powdered sugar to a large mixing bowl (or your Kitchen-aid).

Next, drop in your maple syrup and vanilla. Mix.

Then add in your room temp cream cheese. It is super important that it is room temp. Room temp cream cheese makes for a smooth and creamy frosting. Cold cream cheese doesn’t blend as well!

Mix well.

Finally, add in your room temp butter and mix until fluffy.

That is IT!

If you’re reading this post after making my pumpkin maple cupcakes, this is where the frosting comes in.

Make sure to only frost cooled cupcakes, btw!

To frost, keep it rustic like I did for that fall effect topped with a piece of bacon, or you can use a 12-inch piping bag with a size 32-star tip for a bakery worthy look!
