Best frosting I've made/tried. I didn't stick to the exact measurements, I just added roughly those amounts, and poured coffee in until I reached the consistency/flavour I desired.



This is a nice recipe but it just wasn't what I was looking for. There was so little coffee flavor in the recipe and I don't like the texture of it. As powdered sugar recipes go it is very sweet and choclatey but not what you are looking for when you want a coffee punch in your frosting.



I didn't like the consistency, had a grainy-ness to it. While it was too sweet for me, others loved it.
