Yes, it’s been 3 years since LiG came into existence. Time has flown by in the last 2 years. A lot of things have changed, grown bigger and better, and some have been discarded with time. And here we are, 3 years and going strong.

I started LiG as a surprise 5th anniversary gift for V. So with blogversary we celebrate our anniversary too.

I wanted to do an Eggless BlackForest Cake, but couldn’t even find canned cherries in the nearby area, so changed plans last-minute to accommodate and created a Coffee Layered cake. And I must say I did not overly miss the black forest. :)

I used the chocolate base which has been a hit in my family from Eggless Chocolate Truffle Cake. Soaked it in simple coffee syrup & frosted with whipped cream mixed with some coffee. Topped it with some chocolate curls.

In other news, life is going on chug-chug.

It was perfectly perfect for the occasion, though a little heavy on coffee for kids. Thankfully my kids ate only a few spoonfuls and didn’t give me wide awake at night. ;)

        Hi by layer of cake. You mean the ready made slices. Also u mentioned crumb. How can one do that. Sorry am new to making cakes.

        1. Hi Munira, By layers I mean, Bake a cake and slice into two or three horizontal layers or you can bake in 2-3 separate same size pans if your oven can accommodate more pans in same batch. Crumb coat is the term used for applying very fine layer of icing on complete cake. This helps in keeping the crumbs of the cake from sticking to icing when you are frosting with the final layer of icing. You can Google and get plenty of tutorials on how to crumb coat your cake. Hope this helps. If you need more help, please don’t hesitate to ask.

  2. Looks superb…I am a coffee lover so anything with coffee is loveed. And this one is soaked in kinda food..Happy anniversary to you and V and happy anniversary LiG..Good luck!!

    1. Thank you Deepa. Yes it is my type of cake too. :D
