Are you a frosting lover? When you wait for your piece of birthday cake, are you hoping for a corner piece with roses and edges? Personally, I always hope for a center piece. I want a big square of cake with only enough icing to hold the layers together and lightly coat the top. I love cake, but traditional buttercream frostings are just too sweet for my taste.
This weekend I made my One Bowl Devil’s Food Cake recipe, and I needed some sort of frosting. This is always a dilemma because I have yet to find a frosting that is easy to make and not too sweet. UNTIL NOW. This time I made the cake in a bundt pan and drizzled this super easy mocha glaze over the top.
It’s a wonder anyone else got a piece because I wanted to eat the whole cake myself! If you have leftover coffee, then you probably have everything you need to make this mocha glaze. (In fact, you probably have all the ingredients for the chocolate cake too.) This glaze icing recipe is as simple as whisking three ingredients together, and you will love the result!
