The covering on my cake tastes fantastic but looks far too light and spoils the effect. Without adding more coffee does anyone use a light food colouring to boost the effect? Or should I be adding more coffee? What is an acceptable coffee taste I wonder - perhaps mine isnt enough.
No - recipe uses light muscovado sugar which did whisk really well but very incipid in colour and as it was a gift I was careful not to spoil it however I would add more next time. Will add gravey browning too.
