Easy mocha icing recipe is a basic butter cream frosting with the addition of cocoa and strong coffee or espresso.
This yummy recipe makes 3 cups, to fill and frost a 2 layer 8 or 9 inch cake.
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter until very soft and creamy. With the mixer on very low speed, beat in about 2 cups of the sugar. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl and beaters. Add remaining sugar and cocoa alternately with the coffee beating until very smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla.
This mocha icing goes perfectly with the best buttermilk chocolate cake recipe on this website. It makes a very unique flavored wedding or an all occasion cake.
Tip: If you bake a lot save your excess coffee. You can refrigerate or freeze it until ready to use for your next batch of chocolate cakes or mocha icing.
This recipe also goes well with the yellow cake recipe or the white cake recipes on this site.
Experiment with a variety of flavor combination's. Banana cake goes well with coffee and cocoa flavored frosting. Orange butter cake makes for a unique blend of flavors too. Get creative and have fun with your baking and cake decorating. xo Thanks for visiting my website.
