I just love this frosting--I eat it straight from the bowl! It's fantastic on chocolate, yellow, spice, or banana cakes; cookies and brownies; the list goes on and on!

I used espresso and really like the intense coffee flavor. I put it on brownies and thinned it out a bit and drizzled it on a coffee cake. Excellent!!!!
