  • Add heavy whipping cream and beat until cream is stiff. Keep frosting refrigerated until ready for use, its easier to spread on to the cake.

Coffee Syrup

  • Make 2 cups of really strong coffee of your choice. I used a bold flavor, it makes the cake have more taste. Let the cake cool down, add liquor and mix well.

Finalizing Cake

  • Split your cake into 2 or 3 layers. Place first layer on the cake plate. (Be sure to let baked Beskvit cool off for bit, this way it's not mushy.)

  • Using a spoon, pour 1/3 of the syrup evenly over the first cake layer.

  • Spread 1/3 of the frosting over the first layer. Sift some cocoa powder; I used about 2 tsp. Center the second cake layer over the frosting. Repeat with second layer.

  • For the top layer, pour syrup only on the bottom side. Place it on your cake and cover with frosting. Shift some cocoa to decorate the top. Decorate the sides with grated chocolate.
