Cinnamon Coffee Frosting
June 15, 2004

Omigosh this is my new favorite frosting. I first tried it on the black magic cake, and let me tell you--perfect combination. Thanks to all the other reviewers for the suggestion! I don't keep instant coffee on hand, so when I brewed the very strong coffee for the cake, I brewed a little extra and used about 2/3 milk and 1/3 coffee where the recipe called for milk. I definitely think that if you are having trouble reaching the desired consistency, do NOT keep dumping in powdered sugar, as it really takes away from the buttery cinnamon flavor that's to die for. Instead I suggest using a minimal amount of liquid to get started and add more if needed. My next use of this recipe will be to top my homemade cinnamon rolls! (At hubby's request) Thanks so much for an awesome recipe!
