Sweet Clementine Buttercream Cake

Take The Cake!  Winner, winner, coffee spinner!
Put a twist to the traditional basic cake mix. Substitute coffee in place of liquid which is called for in a simple cake recipe.
We added a bit of the newest flavor, Sweet Clementine coffee, and turned a basic cake into the most decadent and delicious dessert. The icing is buttery, creamy, and zesty and pairs so well with the robust flavor of this unique cake. Everyone will think it came from a professional bakery, but we won't tell if you don't.


Featured Product: Sweet Clementine 8 oz ground coffee

Cake Mix

  • Use your favorite box cake mix.
  • Follow directions on the box.
  • Exception: Where the instructions call for water or milk, use fresh Sweet Clementine coffee instead.

  • 4-5 cups Powdered Sugar.

Buttercream Instructions
