Pretty good frosting! It is, as others have mentioned, quite thin, and different from traditional buttercreams, but it does thicken up as cooled.
My biggest issue with it is that the flavor is definitely more mocha than plain chocolate, thanks to the coffee. I'm sure I could sub it with something else to change the flavor (I'm excited about trying orange juice like someone else mentioned!) I also did vanilla instead of rum, for preferences of the individuals eating the cake.
I loved how easy and quick it was to make! That was my main reason for trying it. I'll def make it again when doing simple cakes, I don't see this working with decorating. I was able to pipe a few cursive words, but it's very runny and wouldn't hold up without lots of refrigerating first. :) Thanks for the recipe! :D
