I'm not sure how the recipe for the frosting makes a frosting.. I followed the recipe and it does not resemble frosting consistency. I ended up making my own
I have made them twice now and my family love them. Maple sugar is not easy to come by in Australia, so I used maple syrup instead. Didn't have a candy thermometer either, so just guessed cooking temps and time. But I just love that frosting...yummmmy. I didn't find the cupcakes too sweet, but I used raw sugar. Don't know if that makes a difference? My only query is: Do the cupcakes need to be refridgerated due to the raw egg whites in the frosting?
I just made these cupcakes about 1 hour ago.....please use less sugar than the receipe calls for!!! I have a super sweet "tooth" and found these cupcakes way too sweet!! I may have to throw them out, my husband also says they are too sweet....On the positive side, they came out nice and moist..
