Doubled the Kahlua everytime it was called for :-) Made a difference in flavor, and very good! To make the cake look professional, freeze the cake layers, then trim the sides and tops to be flat and cylindrical with a long-bladed knife with fine teeth before you stack them. I wanted the mascarpone cheese to stack tall so I froze the cake inbetween stacking each layer. I found I did not need to increase the filling called for. I had trouble keeping the whipped cream from running or separating, so I added WhipIt to it, worked fine and the cream stayed put. I also kept this cake very cold during assembly and before I served it. I shaved chocolate to adorn the top with curls, and placed whole coffee beans in a line around the base. I wanted to take a picture but the cake was gone before I could even get the camera! Delicious!
