Nutella buttercream with coffee, for hazelnut/mocha frosting - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I didn't mean that I would ice the entire cake with straight nutella. The only place I am using straight nutella & at that, a skim coat in the middle then BC with a little of the nutella mixed in it. icon_smile.gif

cakes47: how much nutella will you mix into your BC? Have you done it before, or are you just going to kind of wing it?

I'm with you cakes47, I'm just looking for a filling. I would frost the rest of the cake with buttercream.

Yeah, I meant Nutella as a filling too - I have never tried to cover a cake in it. (That would be too much Nutella around me and I would be forced to consume large quanitities of it...yum!)

I haven't done it before. I am, as you say, going to wing it. I'm sure it will be good. icon_wink.gif

Anyone ever tried to "melt" Nuttella and use like ganache?
I wonder if that would work?

Ok, finished my cakes. It was delicious. I used 50% butter, 25% crisco and 25% nutella. I used about 1/4 cup milk and about 4 Tbs of yesterday's coffee, 2lbs of 10x. The coffee taste was very mild, may use more next time. Overall, it was delicious, even the kids ate it and loved it! It was a nice color too. The cake was a HIT!

Wow! I just tried this recipe last night and, boy oh boy, was it good. It was for a little birthday cake for DH and it was just for us and the kids. The kids weren't too crazy about my cake (Italian Cream cake) but they said the frosting was good! thumbs_up.gif They even mentioned how it tasted a little like coffee. icon_confused.gif Now why would a nine year old and a ten year old say that?!

I am going to try this with the Nutella, it sounds great!  One time I made a chocolate cake and covered it with Chocolate buttercream and added hazelnut liquid coffee creamer in the cake in place of the liquid and in the buttercream in place of the liquid.  I also spread a thin layer between the layers (of the buttercream) and spread a light layer of caramel over that.  It was delicious!
