For the flea market, we packaged single cupcakes in 9 oz. clear cups wrapped with cellophane and tied off with curling ribbon. I also small brown boxes to package 4 cupcakes. We will be donating the proceeds to the High School Speech Team.
Here's the recipe for the frosting. WARNING - - this frosting is very rich!
Maple Buttercream Frosting:
1 cup butter, softened
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
2 T. brown sugar
2 T. maple syrup
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Place softened butter in large bowl. Beat with mixer for 30-40 seconds until whipped. Scrape sides of bowl. Sift powdered sugar into bowl (I didn't sift). Beat with mixer for 30-40 seconds. Scrape down sides of bowl and add brown sugar and maple syrup. Beat for 2-3 minutes or until mixture is fluffy; scraping sides of bowl as needed. Stir in walnuts until just mixed and spread on cooled cake.
