This stuff is AMAZING! I have made it many times and everyone raves about it. I even forgot to add the cream to the last batch I made and it was still AWESOME.

I made a birthday cake for my daughter and several people complimented me on this frosting. It was a great consistency and had just a hint of espresso flavor - but not overwhelming at all. I agree that the frosting is better if you can make it the day of and not refrigerate it.

I used this frosting for DD's cupcakes for her birthday. Very good basic frosting. It was light and fluffy. We really liked it, thank you for sharing.

Good icing, just don't use salted butter or it will be super salty. I didn't have any unsalted, so I figured I'd leave out the extra salt, but it is still very salty. I am still using it since it was a ton of ingredients. Hopefully the cake will balance it out. Besides the salt, it's a tasty icing, but I don't think I would make it again- a lot of work and ingredients for icing!

Frosting has excellent flavor but I must have done something wrong? The frosting turned out runny. I did all the measurements exactly. The only thing I can think of is maybe the chocolate butter mixture wasn't cooled enough? HELP! I really want to get this right so I can frost a cake with it, right now I am putting it in the fridge so it will be spreadable and not runny.

I am surprised this gets so many 5 star reviews. It is WAY to salty, all I could taste with each bite was salt. It takes a great deal of effort to prepare and the results are not really worth it to me. The icing is extremely creamy with a dark chocolate flavor but it was not superior to the icing I normally make. Sorry. :(

What a DELICIOUS frosting! The texture is light and smooth, and the flavor is all rich, dark chocolate -- not at all like the weak, milk chocolate flavor of most frostings. Phenomenal!
