This cake was fabulous! I made it for my boyfriend's golden birthday and the entire cake was gone within 15 minutes. My only real regret is that I should have made 2(: Even his uncle who was on a strict diet couldn't resist 2 pieces!
I used 1.5 cups sugar and the non-alcoholic version. Any more sugar would have been unnecessary really. Also, next time I plan on using part espresso rather than just the strong coffee, because there wasn't much of an aroma or coffee essence to the cake. It was still wonderful, but I would love a stronger coffee presence. I didn't put all the glaze on the top, because it seemed to be drowning the cake. It was still a billion degrees from the oven, and I had to get to the party, so it just totally sucked up all the glaze. I would actually put it all on next time, because that honestly made the cake. You will be very proud to serve this cake no matter if you make it as directed or alter it to your taste.
