Chocolate Espresso Cake

This cake!!! Oh this cake!! Chocolate and coffee...a marriage of perfection and deliciousness! And this wonderful cake, although almost a disaster (the cake overflowed in the oven) turned out magnificently.

A moist chocolate cake sandwiched with an espresso cream filling and slathered in espresso buttercream, sprinkled with chocolate shavings and drizzed with an espresso syrup. After eating this you need to go dancing or something to work off the caffeine high!

Thanks to Arron at Heaven Espresso for the coffee...its the best!

Dear Mon...I got your link from Simoney blog post this morning, and I'm so glad I did! I've just read through your blog from April and (and an hour later!) just wanted to say thanks for sharing your journey. Your story has really impacted me. Your kidlets are beautiful and I LOVE your baking pics. I will definitely be scouting through the recipe list for inspiration!
