    MariaLuisa's Note:

    This is my favorite frosting because: 1) you don't have to mess around with powdered sugar or electric beaters, 2) the fat content is relatively low, 3) it is fast and virtually foolproof, thanks to the cornstarch, 4) it has a beautiful satiny texture and rich dark color, 5) it tastes great. I found it in a charming cookbook entitled "British Columbia Heritage Cookbook" by Mary Evans-Atkinson (Whitecap Books, Vancouver, 1984).

      The actual taste of this was really good but I would never make it again. It definitely wasn't easier than regular frosting (I have a pan with chocolate caked all over it to wash) and using a stand mixer with a little mess would've been much easier than whisking for ten minutes. I cut down the coffee slightly because it seemed like a lot, which I guess is my own fault b/c it almost immediately dried like a rock. I warmed it to try and frost the cake and it barely covered the very probably would've only covered half a dozen cupcakes. I love the taste of it but unless I could make it where it was MUCH creamier, I wouldn't make it again- sorry.

      This is a great recipe Maria! So quick, no dishes, no powdered sugar everywhere!!! I omitted the cocoa and accidentally halved the sugar... but it still came out nicely - with a very strong coffee flavour. Would be great and have a more frosting texture if it was cooked then whipped.
