This is a very light and very delicate cake with a pronounced filling and topping of Mocha Butter Cream.

Oven Temp: 350 degrees F

Tips: You can make this cake in a jiffy by using a ready-made cake, frozen and thawed or fresh from the bakery section in your supermarket. The mocha butter cream will give the cake a homemade touch anyway. Use a serrated knife to split cake into even layers.
