      This is a beautiful chocolate cake and I am not a chocolate lover. May I suggest using coffee liqueur rather than the glaze suggested - gives a more pronounced flavor. Thanks for submitting.

      Made this one this weekend. It was even better than we anticipated. It was so moist! sometimes buttercreams are too buttery for me , but this frosting was a great balance of sweet and buttery. We used instant espresso and the coffee flavor wasn't over-powering at all. It did exactly what it needed to do: enhanced the chocolate flavor and and added another flavor dimension. Highly reccommended!!

      I used semi sweet instead of bitter chocolate in the cake and butter cream, so it im not sure what it was suppose to taste like, but it was pretty good! I love anything espresso flavored! I deocorated it with toffee and chocolate sprinkles! Huge hit at my office potluck!
