      This was gorgeous and glossy and perfectly textured when I made it last night, but when I went to frost the cake after refrigerating overnight, it had a strange texture like Engrossed described, even after whipping again. The flavor is completely spot on, though!

      This has a fabulous sweet coffee flavor and smooth texture. Unfortunately, I made it to use as filling in between yellow cake layers that were frosted with a dark chocolate frosting and as filling it got a weird slimy texture. I'll try it again some day as a frosting and I'm sure it will be great.

      This is a delicious frosting I made to go with a chocolate cake I baked for a friend's birthday. It's light and perfectly sweet enough for our taste. This is a keeper!
