This is awsome frosting. I made Kaluha cupcakes and used this. Very easy to work with while frosting, then firms up nice in fridge. I made pre-holiday cupcakes to try them out on my husband before using them for parties. He loved them!! :)

I made this recipe for the first time a few weeks ago, and everybody loved it! I used it for cupcakes, and I added a little more coffee to mine. One batch of frosting will easily ice 2 dozen cupcakes. For a little extra something I added shaved chocolate to the top. It's very popular with my family and friends! Thank you so much for sharing it.

This is an amazing recipe! I was searching for the perfect mocha frosting that was tasty but light, and I've found it. I could eat this frosting all day long!

Well it tasted very nice but I mistakenly left some granulated sugar in the powdered sugar which caused the icing to have some sugar grains.

While this frosting is good, I had to tweak it a bit to get the flavor I wanted. I had to add more cocoa powder and coffee. Next time, I would use less butter and more powdered sugar, in addition to the cocoa and coffee, to make a little fluffier. I would say this was a good starting point for the frosting recipe.

Wow is this greattttt frosting!! I was looking for a fluffy frosting recipe and this is perfect. Thank you verrrry much Kirsten for sharing it! I think I'll see if shortening is lower fat and substitute some of the butter with it. Next time I'll make sure not to chill the cake before serving though, it gets a bit too firm, it's much nicer not so firm. Very tasty!
