    This icing is very good for piping, but for a richer flavour I added double the amount of coffee.  -  06 Jan 2014

    Easy and for a first time making icing turned out very well I should of just added a lil extra icing sugar as it was a lil runny. But otherwise it is tasty and went well on top of coffee muffins.  -  14 Feb 2016
