This case tastes phenomenal. A great, rich chocolately flavor, but with the depth of coffee.. hence, mocha! :) I decreased the sugar to 1.5 cups, because I knew the icing would be very sweet. I also added 3 TB of instant coffee, rather than just 1 TB (according to the reviews). I loved the fact that you only need one bowl.. yay! The only problem I had (and I'm not sure if it was me, or the cake), is that it cracked in four places after I had frosted it! :-( The cakes were not very even on top, so I had to assemble it in a way where I was not too thrilled, but thought the icing would cover anything up. It did, but then it cracked open like a faultline from an earthquake! Needless to say, it's not a pretty sight, but the taste is WONDERFUL and moist. I'll definitely try again. Pair it with the Coffee Icing from this site (except make sure to add about 1/2 TB to 1 TB of cocoa powder, otherwise, the consistency is kind of foamy) - and you have a superb mocha cake. :)
