    Tasted very good! Subbed xanthan for guar 1:1 as it was what I had on hand. Had a slightly more “caramel” color, I’m guessing due to the maple syrup I used…in fact I tossed a first batch because I thought I burned it.

    Do I let it sit in room temp to make it spreadable after the fridge? Sort of in a dilema now! It tasted good last night after making it though.

      Yes! That will help it spread. Also, sometimes if you run a knife under hot water this will help the frosting spread more easily.
