Let me preface that I really LOVE all things sweet. But this frosting was just disgustingly sweet; I couldn't even swallow it. I've been cooking for about seven years, so I don't think it's me; 5 cups of sugar for 4 cups of frosting is just excessive. My advice? Use 2-3 cups sugar, and add less liquid ingredients. Taste, and then decide if you want more sweetness. Really though, I had to throw out the whole batch, and I used really good quality cocoa.

a really good frosting recipe. I made it to go along with the Black Magic Cake (also on allrecipes), and I found it to be a little shy on the coffee side, so I added quite a bit which then prompted me to thicken it with more of the other ingredients. Overall, a very good frosting recipe that has the mixture of the bitterness of coffee (I used leftover espresso instead of granules) and the sweetness of chocolate. Very rich and satisfying. Thanks!

I like the flavor of this frosting but I think it would go best on a cake that isn't overly sweet. Maybe a Devil's Food? I don't know, but it was definitely too sweet for the chocolate cake recipe I used it on.
