This recipe can be found with my recipe for Chocolate Marble Sour Cream Pound Cake & thought I would post it alone in the event you were looking for a great tasting & easy Frosting. This is my easy go to recipe that I created for my Marble pound cake. The instant coffee granules although a small amount adds a lot of punch when it is combined with the added coffee flavoring. The picture was taken before I added the coffee granules, so it comes out a little more amber in color. Enhance the frosting with shaved chocolate & gold wrapped Hershey's Kiss Candy & it really makes an impressive cake.
1In a medium size bowl add the room temperature butter and cream cheese. Beat till creamy, then add the sifted powdered sugar, instant coffee granules and coffee flavoring or liqueur. Then beat till combined well. Add more instant coffee granules if you want more coffee flavor.
2Frost cake or cookies as desired, then garnish with shaved chocolate, or dust lightly with cocoa powder. Garnish with additional candies, maraschino cherries or nuts, what ever your choice. Chocolate candy sprinkles are also nice.
