  • Step 3/3

    To make the buttercream, heat maple syrup in a saucepan and let simmer over medium-low heat. Meanwhile, add egg yolks and a pinch of salt to a bowl and beat until frothy. When the maple syrup reaches 120°C/250°F, remove from heat and add to the egg mixture. Beat until it’s cooled to room temperature. Add remaining vanilla extract, and slowly mix in remaining cubed butter while beating. Mix everything until a smooth buttercream forms. Spread the buttercream on sheet cake and enjoy!
