The coffee in this cake is optional. I usually only use it when I want to "fancy it up" a little for special occasions lol. You can change it up some by adding a bit of red food color to the cool whip before frosting, and decorate the cake with fresh strawberries, or add "clouds" of cool whip and decorate with berries. If I am using the coffee I usually just decorate the top with some chocolate shavings. Either way you make it its a lite decadent cake and its easy to make.
