    Can substitute espresso for coffee.

    Exceptional cake, just heavenly. Light as a feather - both the cake and the whipped coffee cream. Definitely brings tiramisu to mind. My ganache didn’t quite drip down the sides like the one in the cookbook, I’ll have to work on that technique. Still, it wound up looking beautiful and tasting even better. One of my favorite cakes I’ve ever made.
