Im in need of a coffee flavored frosting. I am making a Chocolate Cake and they asked for a coffee frosting since the person the cake is for loves coffee. If anyone has any good recipes or can tell me what to add to the buttercream to make it coffee flavored it would be very appreciated. Thank You.

I would use Medaglia D'oro Instant Espresso powder - take a teaspoon to start and dissolve it in boiling water - just enough to dissolve the powder not make it into a paste. Let cool and add to your buttercream. I think the instant espresso adds a better flavor than regular coffee but you could certainly use regular coffee or even Starbuck's instant via - you can buy the packets individually at Starbucks.

I put my espresso powder directly into my icing. It makes little specs like vanilla beans. You can adjust the taste. My favorite is to add it to my crusting cream cheese icing.

I just use my regular instant coffee (wheap and available anywhere). Mix a teaspoon with a few drops of water, just enough to desolve all of the crystals, then mix it with your buttercream. Adjust for taste.
