Easy Coffee Icing

Amy Barrett


I made this easy coffee frosting to go on a mayonnaise cake (chocolate). It whips up quick and easy. The coffee flavor is perfect and its hardly sweet at all. I was eating the frosting all by itself and I normally scrap off the icing. Great coffee flavor that doesn’t overwhelm your taste buds but entices them!
