      Outstanding! Excellent! Wonderful! While I didn't follow the recipe exactly (didn't have frangelica for example), I now have three volunteers who want this to be their "new" favorite birthday cake! The ONLY change we will do in making this a second time is reducing the amount of instant coffee to only 1 tablespoon (we're not big on coffee-flavor) OR eliminating the coffee flavor altogether and doubling the chocolate instead!!! Chilling is CRUCIAL...we had some before it had chilled all the way, and then had some again LATER (after chilling)...and the flavor had more depth. Anyway...this is DEFINITELY a "keeper." Good job BK!!!

      Since this cake was made primarily for my other half, I didn't include the liqueur, so it lacked that soaked-in-moisture (as well as the flavor!), but the inclusion of the espresso & the instant coffee made him happy enough! Now I just have to figure out a way to eliminate the coffee (for myself) & still have an acceptable dessert (maybe making two 2-layer cakes & adding the coffee to only one of the cakes! Anyway, in spite of the coffee, you do have a very nice birthday cake here! [Tagged, made & reviewed under the theme, BK's Chocolate 'Espressons' in the current Comfort Cafe]

      tasty and nice presentation. i also recommend chilling completely or letting the Frangelico soak into the cake for a few hours before serving. instead of "box" cake, I used my own "from scratch" recipe.
