Coffee-Chocolate layer cake with mocha-mascarpone frosting

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


  1. I love that frosting! A delicious looking cake!



  2. I agree that the frosting looks so good!

    Hope you have a great time on your honeymoon and congrats on your marriage!

  3. Have a great honeymoon!!!!

    The frosting does look good, even if the cake wasn't worth all the effort and waiting.

  4. Oh wonderful! Hope you have a great honeymoon!

  5. I would have another go, but then again a good coffee cake recipe is hard to find.
