5 stars plus! This recipe is delicious - not overly rich or sweet. I had 2 guests for a total of 5 for dinner, so I made individual trifles. Bake two 9 inch cakes, 1 with coffee, 1 without, and freeze. Increase the filling by 50% - 12 oz cheese (substitute worked great), ¾ C sugar, 3 T liqueur. 24 hours ahead, thaw the cakes slightly, chop into cubes so they resemble small croutons, spread cake pieces on two cookie sheets and drizzle with coffee mixture. Make a bit more frosting using 2½ cups of heavy cream, 1/3 cup conf. sugar and 3 T of liqueur. Fold ¾ cup of the frosting into the filling. Layer as follows, pressing cake down lightly: white cake pieces, filling, dark cake pieces, filling, white cake pieces, frosting. The frosting should fill them to the top. Smooth flat. Alternate which type of cake you start with. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and chocolate shavings, refrigerate. I put the 5 for dinner in martini glasses. They looked great. The rest went into plastic 9 oz cocktail cups, for a total of 13. I was able to share with the neighbors, impress my dinner guests and easily send them home with 2nds. Awesome recipe.
