Light, fluffy, and silky smooth is just what I expect from a buttercream frosting, and this recipe delivered! I decreased the powdered sugar to 1 cup and added 1.5 T cocoa and 2 T strongly brewed coffee. I fully expected the need to add more coffee since I prefer a prominent coffee taste, but after a quick taste test, I was pleasantly surprised to find the flavor spot on! Since DH isn't fond of ANY frosting, I used the recipe amount for his entire 13x9" chocolate birthday cake, so there was only a thin layer, however, doubling the amount would be the way to go for a sheet cake. Kahlua would also make a fine substitute for the coffee. I will definitely make again!
