  1. Melt all ingredients together over a double boiler.
  2. Remove from double boiler and whisk until frosting becomes thick and glossy.
  3. Wait 10 minutes, then place frosting in the freezer for 8 minutes (stirring halfway) and frost cupcakes or cakes.
  4. To frost: Scoop frosting over baked good and smooth down with the back of a knife or with an offset spatula. Place back in the freezer for 5 minutes. Take out and smooth frosting with a spoon or your finger.

*please use organic ingredients, if possible

**Because I have replaced sugar with maple syrup, you cannot pipe this frosting. I use a small portion scoop, or you could use a spoon, to scoop over baked goods.
