This is an amazing cake! People offer me money to make it! I did however double the recipe, using two cake mixes instead of one. I made one white cake mix and split the batter between two 9 inch cake pans, the other cake mix i used the coffee in and put that in my 9in Springform cheesecake pan. I cut the coffee colored cake with a large bread knife for a total of 5 layers (3 brown and 2 white)
I did double the coffee anywhere it called for coffee (anything liquor, instant or brewed) and dissolved the coffee first. One other tip that really helped me was I bought a plastic condiment bottle with the tiny spout (like for mustard)that is what I drizzled the coffee onto the cake. The frosting will not slip off If you beat it long enough. Beat your cream until a scraper stands up in the middle without falling over.
I make my cakes the day before and refrigerate them. and then assemble it the next day or the night before I want to use it. really helped to double or triple the coffee
