Rated 1 out of 5 by Shannibelle.com from I make various different kinds of icings and I must say I will never make this again. While the icing was easy to make I had to double the recipe to dirty ice a 9x13 cake. The icing left an after taste that was not pleasant, the butter and shortning could be tasted, then the sweetness of the icing and then coffee aftertaste. I scrapped my whole cake because a chocolate cake and this icing was terrible together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sherrixbaby from This recipe was a great base, but feel free to play around with it to your taste. I used 2.5 tablespoons of warm milk (instead of 2) which I dissolved the 1 tablespoon instant coffee into, before adding the the mix. I also used about 3.5 cups of sugar instead of the full 4 and it was the perfect consistency to spread on my double layer cake. I think 4 cups would be wayyyy too sweet. Everyone loved it!
