Excellent butter cream frosting! I couldn't have been more pleased. I scaled this to 32 servings (4 cups powdered sugar) for my 9" layer cake and still wish I would have had more for decorating...

This didn't have the taste of coffee enough even with a VERY strong coffee, which I used, in it... So I applied to one of the reviews and added 2 more tablespoons of coffee! The taste came up a...

Used this to frost mocha cupcakes, and it was perfect. I did have to double the recipe to frost all 24 cupcakes. It turned out light and fluffy, and definitely had a distinct coffee flavor.

This frosting came out so great that is tasted and looked like it was bought right from the bakery. I made two 9" x 13" cakes and spread the frosting in between. Double the amount of frosting ...
