brown sugar maple frosting

As I sit here writing this post, let me just say that it has been a long day.
Scratch that. A long week... several weeks.
I don't think I'm overstating when I say that this momma needs a break. Unfortunately, breaks are in short supply around here, so when there's no break in sight, sometimes a cupcake loaded with frosting has to do.

This brown sugar maple frosting is so delicious and just sweet enough. If Autumn were a creamy, sugary concoction, this would be it. It is the perfect companion to chocolate, and to any bad day. You can find the recipe //here// and whip some up this weekend while your kids are in sugar comas and throw some of their leftover candy on top. ;)
