    I agree with the comment on consistency. I make homemade buttercream all the time, and I’ve never seen a recipe with so little powdered sugar. I gave it a go anyway, because I’d just made some maple bacon cookies this sounded just right for. Perfect room temp butter, whipped precisely as instructions list, and it was SO runny. I maybe it’s the syrup, I’m not sure, but I added quite a bit more powdered sugar after this and it still is sticky and runny (like slide right off the spatula runny). It’s delicious, but it’s super messy and certainly won’t stay in place let alone hold a shape. A+ for taste, but lacking in the consistency department.

      Sorry I really don’t know why there would be an issue. It came out perfect for me, sorry to hear that!

        I was thinking, and I wonder did you use pure maple syrup? I used just plain old pancake syrup that I had around, and after thinking about it, that is probably quite a bit thinner than the pure stuff. Maybe that made the difference?

            I made this recipe EXACTLY as written, with pure maple syrup, room temp but not runny unsalted margarine (that’s the one difference I had to have, since I needed my buttercream to be dairy-free), followed the directions precisely, and it came out absolutely perfect. Huge hit. Universally acclaimed. “Hints of dulce de”; “Tastes like caramel”. When I first read the recipe I also thought it had a surprisingly tiny amount of confectioners sugar, and I wasn’t sure if it would work, but I always try a recipe without changing it the first time to give it a chance – and it surprised me with how perfect it was! Not only was the taste great, it piped beautifully and held its shape not only on the fresh cake, but even for the next day or so on the little bit of cake left over. A home run.

    I tried this recipe and I agree it didn’t have enough powdered sugar. I added another couple cups and a few drops of maple flavor. It was much better with the extra sugar. 🙂
