  6. Bake for 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool fully before frosting.
  8. *Follow instructions below for the frosting so that you make it while the cakes are cooling.

  2. Add in maple syrup and beat until it becomes a whip.
  3. Set aside and cover until ready to frost (you can place it for a few minutes in the fridge, but not too long because you don’t want it to harden).
  4. Frost cakes and enjoy!
