These cakes are topped with a coffee flavored butter cream, and a piece of decorative chocolate.

I’m sorry about the European measurements. These recipes are copied straight from my notes in my individual production pastry class. I’m putting them here on just a pinch for my own posterity. If you would like to convert the measurements, I recommended using this conversions calculator: southernfood.about.com/...blconv.htm
