Hazelnut Cafe Frosting – Recipe

For my husband’s birthday cake, I cut my buttercream recipe in half and gave it a twist:

  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Butter Flavored Crisco (shortening)
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Hazelnut Syrup (Find it in the coffee section)
  • 1/4 Cup Strongly Brewed Coffee (I used Folgers Caramel Drizzle)
  • 2-3 Cups Powdered Sugar


  1. Beat butter and shortening on medium/high speed for ten minutes.
  2. Beat in milk, hazelnut syrup, and coffee.
  3. Gradually beat in powdered sugar.
  4. Blend until smooth.

You can use more or less coffee according to your taste preference. This made more than enough to frost a 13x9x2 cake. It’s delectable!
