  • Add vanilla essence and blend for 30 seconds.
  • Grease an 8-9-inch diameter round cake pan with 1 tablespoon melted butter.

  • Once the cake is completely cool, using a sharp knife cut it into two halves horizontally. If the top most layer is uneven, you may cut a very thin layer from top and discard it.
  • Place the 2 layers on a rack separately.
  • Before frosting, remove any loose from cake.
  • Sprinkle coffee syrup on both layers very slowly and drop by drop at a place.
  • Spread a thick layer, 1/3 of the whipped cream frosting on one side of one layer. Place the other layer on top of it. Spread a thin layer, 1/3 of the frosting on top and all over the side edges of the cake. Transfer the last 1/3rd whipped cream on a piping bag and make some flowers on top.
  • Spread the grated chocolate on top and all over the side edges of the cake.
