Hi bloch - welcome to CC.

Here is a helpful link for *what to use when out of Honey, Golden Syrup, Maple Syrup and the likes.
Just scroll down the page until you see Golden Syrup.

thank u blue hue but I had already seen that my confusion is the substitute for golden syrup is corn syrup n for corn syrup is molasses n light corn syrup n substitute for molasses is honey/maple syrup. So can I use these cause I just need a tablespoon for the frosting. Which do you think is better honey or maple

Well, according to Wikipedia, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_syrup) "Lyle's Golden Syrup" is an artificial invert sugar syrup, i,e., one in which sucrose has been split into glucose and fructose. As is high fructose corn syrup (Golden Syrup is made from cane sugar, while HFCS is made from ordinary corn syrup).

Honey is a naturally occurring invert sugar syrup (made from flower nectar). I should think that a very mild honey (e.g., clover) would be the closest substitute.
