Coffee and Chocolate.
What more could a girl ask for?
I know I am in heaven whenever I am eating this Mocha Layer Cake and I guarantee you will be too!
This building on recipes extravaganza is really worth the effort.
It’s actually not as much work as you may think as long as you have your recipes prepared in advance you can whip this baby together in less than 20 minutes!
I used my American Buttercream recipe which I am falling in love with more and more each time I use it!
Add some coffee paste and s smidgeon of ganache and you are half way home my friends!
The chocolate covered espresso beans really ties the final decor together and they are so good to munch on while decorating! (they make you go faster too LOL)
- Mix the instant coffee with the water to make a smooth paste.
- Add to the buttercream at the last stage of mixing along with the semi melted (but cooled) ganache.
- Assemble the cake as shown in the video
If you DO refrigerate, bring to room temperature before serving
