Yes they can. I use them all the time. I substitute it for the part to all of the milk in my recipe. It tastes very yummy!

I don't use that particular brand but yes I do use coffee syrup in my buttercream, especially the creme brulee. I have used German and White chocolate along with cocoa to make fudgy buttercream as well as french vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and Irish Cream by themselves. I routinely brush the tops of my cupcakes with syrup before frosting them, a little goes a long way, to keep them from drying out as fast. I substitute all the liquid (about 2 ounces) in my buttercream recipe for coffee syrup. The only trouble I have had is with coloring some of the piping frosting, sometimes it makes it look grainy.

Do you still use vanilla extract when you use the syrup?

I use it in place of the vanilla and water. Then add a little water if needed
