Caramel Macchiato Frosting made with International Delight coffee creamer is the perfect frosting recipe for fall. Simple, easy & delicious dessert recipe
My morning coffee is something I go to bed looking forward to. The first thing I do in the morning is head downstairs to fill my mug. It’s not only how I wake up & get going for the day but I often find my inspiration during that first cup of jo. Something about those hot sips of strong coffee long before the sun comes up really gets my creativity flowing & I feel ready to tackle my day head on.
While I was sipping my coffee with Caramel Macchiato creamer from International Delight the other morning I was brainstorming on ideas for yet another birthday celebration in this house. You see – the oldest in the house & the youngest have birthdays exactly a week apart from each other. So the first part of August is a busy time for us. Fortunately my morning coffee gave me more than a pick-me-up that day. I was inspired to use that wonderful caramel macchiato flavor to create a delicious frosting that I would use for the birthday cake I was ready to make.
Let me tell you – it was a HUGE HIT! The delicious hints of caramel macchiato flavor in this frosting were the perfect compliment to the cake. It definitely was a great way to get more creative in the birthday cake making – all starting with my morning cup of coffee. We ended up having a wonderful birthday celebration full of food, laughter & family time. I love it when something as dear to me as my morning coffee can continue on through my day & be a part of something as special as a birthday celebration.
