Freckeled Mocha Cake is awesome!
post #332 of 425
What frosting did you use? I'm thinking of doing chocolate IMBC or mocha IMBC. Do you think mocho frosting would be too much mocha?

I used the regular buttercream frosting.

I have to say that I have been an advocate of the Cake Doctor Books - however, seeing all these wonderful scratch recipes makes me want to jump back into the good ole things instead of taking the short cuts. Thanks ya'll for the wonderful recipes!

Flava - both chocolate or mocha flavored buttercreams would be awesome with the Freckled Mocha cake.

icon_lol.gif Yeah, I didn't think so either! I'm gonna just go for it. The Freckled Mocha with chocolate frosting. I'm not sure what frostings do do with my other two. I'm doing the coconut layer cake and the WBH orange butter cake but don't know what to ice them with!! Somebody help!!

I was just checking out the recipe for the freckeled mocha cake. I couldn't find anywhere in the directions why you make one layer smaller(less batter) than the other. Has anyone done this cake in an 8 " x 2" pan? It sounds delicious and I want to try it sometime. I love mocha.
Thanks

Thanks CK!

I have another question, how many days in advance can I bake the cakes? Would they still be moist and fresh if baked a day in advance or should I bake the same day?

You shouldn't have any problem baking the cake a day or 2 in advance. Just wrap in plastic wrap when they are cooled.

They make one layer smaller than the other so that you only have to torte once (you torte the larger layer so you'd have the one smaller layer and then the split larger layer for three layers of cake and two layers of filling). I always bake their cakes evenly in two pans and torte each layer so it doesn't matter how you do it. HTH!

Flava, for the cupcakes, baking a day in advance should be fine. If you wanted to do them much more than that, I'd recommend wrapping and freezing. Can't wait to hear what you decide to do!

The orange would go great with any citrus zest in your buttercream...coconut with raspberry in the frosting would be good...or banana liqueur
