Mocha cream cheese frosting with dark chocolate layers.
Ingredients
  • For the frosting:
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 4 tbsps of softened butter
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • For the ganache filling:
  • 4 ounces of dark chocolate
  • ½ cup of heavy cream
Instructions
  1. For the frosting:
  2. Mix together the cream cheese and butter.
  3. Add in the vanilla and espresso powder.
  4. Slowly pour in the powdered sugar.
  5. Finish off with heavy cream.
  6. Add more or less sugar depending on how creamy you want your frosting. I left mine on the stiff side so I could pipe it on the cake.
  7. For the ganache:
  8. Heat the cream in a sauce pan on medium low.
  9. When the cream begins to bubble remove from heat and add chocolate.
  10. Mix until thickened.
  11. Let cool before using.
  12. Assembly:
  13. After your cake layers have cooled (don't forget to click the link for my favorite chocolate cake!) add the ganache to the middle of the cake. Place in the fridge until ganache has set and slightly hardened. Frost the cake with your cream cheese mixture. I used my left over frosting to pipe an edge around my cake.
