There is enough glaze to top about 4 dozen doughnuts

Doughnuts must be warm while dipping in the glaze in order for the glaze to harden, I advise to make the glaze before you make the doughnuts

INGREDIENTS:

6-8 tablespoons light cream or full-fat milk

1 tablespoon instant coffee granules

2 teaspoons vanilla

3/4 cup butter, softened

6 cups confectioners sugar, sifted to remove all small lumps

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

INSTRUCTIONS:—————————————–

In a bowl whisk 6 tablespoons cream or milk with coffee granules and vanilla; stir to dissolve the coffee granules.

In a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed beat the butter with confectioners sugar, cinnamon and salt; gradually add in the coffee mixture beating until smooth and adding in more cream or milk if needed to make a dipping consistancy.

Dip tops of warm doughnuts in the glaze.

The perfect angel food cake frosting!

Test Kitchen Notes; for chocolate frosting use chocolate flavor Cool Whip, instant chocolate pudding mix and chocolate milk (see my chocolate angel food cake)

Some other variations; for a lemon flavor frosting  use a lemon flavor pudding mix and lemon extract, for a coconut flavor use coconut cream pudding mix with coconut extract then sprinkle the top of the frosted cake with flaked coconut… really the flavor possibilities are endless!

INGREDIENTS:

1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip frozen topping, thawed (can use reduced-fat or fat-free)

1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix ( cream cheese flavor pudding mix is great also)

1 cup milk (for a thicker frosting use 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk)

1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS:————————————-

In a medium bowl combine instant pudding mix with milk and vanilla until smooth.

Gently fold in the Cool Whip topping until combined.

Spread onto cooled cake.
