Recipe by Manami

"Cake is my favorite dessert - especially frosted cake." So says Anna Ginsberg from Austin, Tx. The recipe was found on I didn't include cooling time for cake in the recipe, that will vary according to the weather and humidity. I am so glad Anna Ginsberg chose to share this recipe and that we were able to make this delicious cake!

This was such a pretty cake and was enjoyed by all. The base itself had a bit of a strong taste to it probably from all that strong coffee but with the frosting and syrup it wasn't really noticeable although next time I think I'd substitute orange juice for the coffee anyway.
