  • 2/3 cup water
  • ¾ cup espresso or very strong coffee cooled
  • 1 tablespoon coffee-flavored liqueur or dark rum
  • 2 cans Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Frosting Starter
  • 2 packets Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Mocha Flavor Mix
  • 4 oz . mascarpone cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 8" round cake pans.
  2. Prepare cake batter as directed on package.
  3. Pour cake batter into prepared pans and bake 25 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cakes comes out clean.
  4. Let cakes cool completely and turn out of pans.
  5. In small bowl, combine espresso and coffee liqueur.
  6. Poke holes in cooled cakes with a skewer. Generously brush tops of both cakes with espresso mixture, using up to 1/2 cup. Set aside the remaining ¼ cup.
  7. Pour 1 packet of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Mocha Flavor Mix into 1 can of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Frosting Starter. Stir until evenly blended. Repeat with second packet and can.
  8. Transfer 1/2 cup of the Mocha frosting you just created to a piping bag.
  9. Transfer another 1/2 cup of the Mocha frosting to a small bowl and combine it with the mascarpone cheese. This will be your cake filling.
  10. With the piping bag, pipe a circle or “dam” of the Mocha frosting around outer edge of bottom cake layer.
  11. Fill center circle with mocha/mascarpone filling. Top with second layer of cake.
  12. Frost sides and top of layer cake with remaining Mocha frosting.
  13. Dip or brush flat side of ladyfinger cookies with remaining espresso mixture and adhere to sides of cake.
  14. Chill 20 minutes. Garnish top edge of cake with shaved chocolate before serving.
  1. Tie a ribbon around the finished cake for a beautiful presentation. This can also help keep the ladyfingers in perfect alignment after assembling the cake.
