Coffee Chocolate cake

For one of the orders I got a request to make a chocolate cake for a lovely girl who is turning 4. Since coffee only brings out lovely flavor from the chocolate, I would not resist this combination. I also added shards of white chocolate to the batter as it brings out a lovely effect. I would not be able to show the cake as it was not mine to cut πŸ™‚ I got a remarkable feedback on it.
