Cinnamon Coffee Frosting
October 14, 2006

This recipe is fabulous. Gave it only 4* because I tweaked it way too much. Like other reviewers suggested, I mixed the sugar and milk in slowly, checking for consistency. When I checked the taste and consistancy after 2 cups of sugar and about 1 tbsp of milk it was perfect. The frosting wasn't too sweet, which is the way we like it. I suspect 3 cups of sugar would make the frosting very sweet, which you may need when baking for kids. But here we are not too fond of extra sweetness, so I stopped with 2 cups. I also added about a cup of chopped nuts, which made the frosting extra special. I didn't add any vanila, but added another tsp of instant coffee. The coffee taste was perfect and not at all overpowering which I was apprehensive about. I used this frosting with a coffee cake, and the end result was fabulous. Will def be making this again, probably with a chocolate cake the next time. Btw, this recipe is not enough if you want to fill as well as frost a cake. I just frosted and it was just sufficient.
