Coffee Addicts Beware: Mocha Cake Ahead

I often send extra treats with my husband when he goes to work; it’s one strategy for keeping the cake I make off of my hips. One of his co-workers requested a mocha cake for his birthday this weekend. I flavored my best chocolate cake with espresso and mixed coffee liquor into the chocolate buttercream frosting. I kept the look of the cake simple and added a few of my favorite coffee treats: chocolate-covered coffee beans! (These are the cupcakes I made with some extra cake batter; Andrew’s cake went out the door before I could style a photo shoot.)
