Almond Frosting

Yield frosting for one 10-inch cake


  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

How to Make It

  1. Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, corn syrup, water, and coffee powder in a small Dutch oven. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches hard crack stage (300°). Remove mixture from heat; stir in soda.

  2. Working rapidly, thinly spread mixture onto an ungreased 15- x 10- x 1-inch jellyroll pan. Let cool completely. Crush and set aside.

  3. Beat whipping cream in a large mixing bowl until foamy; add remaining sugar and vanilla, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves. Fold prepared crushed candy into whipped cream.
