A Slice of Joe

My parents LOVE coffee, so naturally, I decided to make them a coffee-flavored cake for their birthdays. Their birthdays are only a few weeks apart, so we usually celebrate them together since it's an hour-and-a-half commute to visit them. This year I made them a vanilla cake with coffee-flavored (and speckled with fine coffee grounds) vanilla icing and small chocolate decorations. Let me tell you, the coffee in there was quite potent. Just smelling it could give you a little caffeine buzz, but that was just how they liked it. Plus, I had plenty of leftover icing to make a batch of coffee cupcakes (cuppa-joe-cakes?) for my friend Jen's birthday that same weekend. I don't know if anyone got any sleep after eating these, but at least they went to bed happy!
