Prep & Instructions
Heat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour pan; set aside.

To make the cakelets: In small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; set aside. In liquid measuring cup, stir together milk, maple syrup, vanilla and maple flavoring; set aside. In medium bowl, beat butter and brown sugar on medium speed, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, scraping bowl often. Reduce speed and blend in flour mixture, alternating with milk mixture, until all ingredients have been incorporated. Spoon 1 tablespoon batter into each of the wells in the pan. Set aside remaining batter. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Using a serrated knife, cut off the portion of the cakelet that rose above the pan. Invert cakes onto cooling rack. Wash, dry and prepare pan as before and repeat procedure with remaining batter.

To make frosting: In medium bowl, beat ingredients together on medium speed, adding additional milk as needed until frosting is light and fluffy. Cover frosting and set aside.

To make glaze: In small bowl, stir together glaze ingredients, adding additional water until glaze is smooth and has the consistency of heavy cream.
Using a pastry brush, brush glaze on acorn cakelet tops and dip in coarse raw sugar; set cakelets on waxed paper for 1 hour to dry.

To assemble: Spread 1 tablespoon frosting on the flat side of a cakelet. Place a second cakelet, flat side down on top of frosted cakelet. Set aside. Repeat with remaining cakelets. Makes 18 assembled cakelets, or 36 individual cakelets.

This recipe is really easy thanks to the precise writing of it in the instructions. Once I got all the bowls organized and followed the recipe it is quite easy and a Big fall surprising treat. Little children can help if you show them the steps of assembling. Delicious recipe.
