  • Mood:

Coffee and Spice Frosting

For mature audiences only

By:Liyang HU
Time:15 minutes


  • 30ml espresso (single shot, or double ristretto)
  • 150g icing sugar
  • 2.5ml vanilla extract
  • 2.5g ground ginger
  • 2.5g ground cinnammon
  • 2.5g ground nutmeg
  • 30g cream cheese


  1. Make a shot of espresso directly into a small bowl
  2. Sift and mix in the icing sugar — avoiding any lumps — to achieve a smooth paste
  3. Mix in the vanilla extract and spices
  4. Thoroughly stir in enough cream cheese to make the frosting pliable, but not runny

Additional Notes:

  • Makes enough for 12 muffins, not sure about cakes
  • Would be interesting to replace some of the espresso with Kahlua
