Well…. this is my 2nd attempt at making another birthday cake.. if you recall my previous attempt was for my hubby’s birthday a couple of months back
My MIL’s favourite cake is actually chestnut or walnut cakes.. but alas… i couldn’t really find a good recipe for chestnut cakes and i had no walnuts on hand… so i made her next favourite cake which was a coffee cake. I had found a espresso coffee cake recipe sometime back which i was dying to try and this was the perfect opportunity. In addition, this coffee cake had no butter or oil… so it’s a healthier alternative to most other cakes. Perfect!
I frosted the finished cake with chocolate espresso buttercream which tasted gorgeous and topped off the finished cake with 3 hand made edible fondant roses i had made slightly earlier. For added decoration, i added some leaves to finish it off.
