Makes enough for 1 cake


1/4 cup 60 mL butter
1/4 cup 60 mL milk
3 cups 750 mL icing sugar
3 tsp 15 mL vanilla extract
3 tsp 15 mL maple extract
1 tsp 5 mL coconut extract
1 tsp 5 mL almond extract
1/4 tsp 1 mL orange extract

Note: Only use one flavor (or reduce the amounts proportionately). The quantities listed here reflect their relative strengths.


  1. Soften the butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds. If it melts a bit, that is not problem.
  2. Add the milk and flavor to the butter and mix them together with the beaters.
  3. Add the rest of the icing sugar a bit at a time. After adding each portion, beat it until the icing sugar is all absorbed. If you add too much loose icing sugar at once, it will fly around and make a mess.
