cipe in the Weekend Guardian, and commented on how good it looked. So that was his birthday cake sorted - he's even allowed butter for special occasions.
This is basically a sponge cake made from two batters marbled together - one flavoured with coffee and the other with cocoa to give a darker batter. Both batters are made with light brown sugar to give extra flavour. The two layers are sandwiched and topped with coffee flavoured buttercream, and I decorated with a mix of chocolate stars and cappuccino sprinkles.
