Expert Tips

Instant espresso powder is sold in the coffee or gourmet section of the grocery store. Its flavor is slightly stronger than instant coffee.

Instant coffee powder can be used in place of the instant espresso powder. However, granulated instant coffee does not work well. For espresso flavor, double the amount of coffee powder.

Substitute 4 cups of nonfat frozen whipped topping, thawed, for the whipped cream frosting and save about 15 grams of fat per serving.
