About this recipe: This is an old recipe I have for chocolate-coffee icing. Simply perfect for decorating a coffee and walnut cake or pipe on top of chocolate cupcakes. The recipe makes enough to cover a 20cm layered cake.
This recipe was ok, the flavor was good, but it was not what I would call "icing". It was kind of thin, closer to a glaze than icing, I had to add more powdered sugar to get a better spreading consistency. - 13 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious! Reminded me a bit of Terimasu! I did, however, make a few alterations! 1) I used esspresso instead of coffee (added amazing flavor... however, almost too much flavor) 2) I mixed the initial ingrediants in the blender for a bit, before adding the confectioners suger a bit at a time 3) I served with a dark chocolate cake, wich, although delicious, proved to be to much. THIS WAS DELICIOUS! I definate keeper! - 26 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
good flavor but as written doesnt work, i had to add almost double the amount of sugar to get a spreading consistency tried a second batch with about 1/2 the amount of coffee, and didnt melt the butter, and it worked much better - 12 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
