The one where she whips it into submission...

If you remember, yesterday's post was about my failure in making a Coffee Swiss Meringue Buttercream frosting. Well I tried it again last night, following the directions very carefully and, if in doubt, beating longer than I normally would. And it turned out just right.

In fact, this time I added a bit of cocoa to the coffee in the frosting hoping to give it just a hint of chocolate. The result was really yummy.

Overall, Not-So-Ex deemed the cupcakes too strong on coffee flavor for him (which was a bit shocking) but I thought they were pretty good. Next time I'd probably lower the amount or strength of the coffee though.

Why is it I can't ready this blog without having to go to my kitchen and make a snack after? :)
