the first time i made this icing, the espresso flavor was way too strong. It was almost bitter. Not to mention the Instant espresso makes the icing a very unappetizing color. The second time around i cut the espresso in half to 1/2 tablespoon. It came out great! the perfect color, texture and flavor.

This is a very good buttercream recipe. I used it to make a fondant cake and it worked perfectly. Unlike the other review, I found the espresso flavour to be perfect with the added flavour of the vanilla. Not too bitter at all. My only possible criticism is that it seemed very sweet, but I mean, it's buttercream! Great recipe.
