    FLUFFSTER's Note:

    I found this while looking for something else on the Nestle site. This cake is so delicious, having a coffee glaze brushed on the cake before you frost it. Speaking of frosting? It has a fabulous buttercream frosting! This is not for dedicated dieters! Note: regarding the chocolate in this recipe, you will need to use "Nestle Chocolatier 62% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar). This will be for the cake and the frosting. I will refer to the chocolate by typing "Nestle chocolate baking bar." You can find this in the baking section of your supermarket.
