This week we celebrated my daughter's Birthday for friends and family and she asked me explicitly to make a Coffee Cake for her party and of course I did. I baked a vanilla cake and cut it in three layers. For the filling I mixed mascarpone and whipped cream in a 2:1 rate and added one table spoon espresso powder and two table spoons powder sugar. The filling was smeared between the layers of the cake, on top of it and on the sides. I spread sprinkels on the side and embellished the top of the cake with chocolate balls and coffee beans, et voila! Fortunately for my daughter, the cake was a great success. ~*~ My Plant Sack was featured by Embracing Grace ! Thank you very much, Stacey!
