{PIN IT}

This Coffee Buttercream Frosting Recipe is amazingly delicious and more than a little addicting. A perfect creamy filling and icing for layered cakes or to top your favorite cupcake recipe. Spread a thin layer on brownies or scoop some between a couple of chocolate chip cookies.

If you are a coffee lover like I am, this rich and tasty icing is a must have for your recipe arsenal. I love using it to top a dark chocolate cupcake or even carrot cake flavor. Homemade Buttercream Icing can take a box mix from so-so to over the top, the extra jolt of coffee flavor makes it doubly decadent. Substitute almond or hazelnut extract for vanilla for another layer of flavor. To pipe icing on using a decorator bag, thicken it by using more powdered sugar.

* Icing Tip- to load bag roll it halfway down over a glass and fill, roll bag back up and press icing down from top with even pressure, start on the outside and work your way inward.
