A fluffy 7-minute frosting with wonderful brown-sugar flavor.

3/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon light corn syrup or 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
Dash salt
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring

Place all ingredients except maple flavoring in top of a double boiler (not over heat).  Beat 1 minute with electric or rotary beater to blend. Place over boiling water and cook, beating constantly until mixture forms stiff peaks, about 4 to 5 minutes (don't overcook). Remove from boiling water. Add maple flavoring and beat 1 to 2 minutes or till of spreading consistency. Frosts top and sides of a 13x9x2-inch sheet cake or tops and sides of two 8-inch layers.
