This will be my last post for 2 weeks - as I will be leaving for my honeymoon tonight.
ease: 3.5/5. Time consuming.
prep time: 30mins for cake batter and frosting.
cooking time: 40mins baking and 2hours & 10mins chilling time.
total: 3hours & 10mins.
taste: 3/5. The texture was dense, moist yet light whilst the frosting was super airy and it also looked lovely when cut. Everyone liked it to a point but felt the coffee flavour actually detracted from it. Perhaps using a coffee made from ground coffee beans would yield a richer, less 'cheap' taste than instant coffee granules.
would I make it again: No.
recipe: Coffee-Chocolate Layer Cake with Mocha-Mascarpone Frosting
