Cinnamon Coffee Frosting
November 23, 2011

First off I want to say that this was an excellent base to an OUTSTANDING frosting only because I was missing a few ingredients and wanted to try a few substitutions for personal taste which is why I rate three stars (the original recipe lack actual cinnamon flavor, appears gritty, and is WAY overly sweet). First I wasn't spending $4 on instant coffee for one teaspoon, I am on a budget here. So I took a measuring cup and put one part milk, one part REALLY strong brewed coffee, and a big spoonful of sour cream. I wanted the consistency to hold up, as my first batch wasn't stiff enough so I did add some shortening. 1tbs, Cinnamon, 1tsp 100% maple syrup, 2tbs Ghiradelli unsweetened cocoa powder, teeny tiny splash of vanilla extract and rum. Fabulous texture, consistency, and the flavor was amazing! If your frosting is too thin try using some Crisco.
