This chocolate espresso layer cake is a decadent dessert from Savory Simple. People will beg you for the recipe! I don't personally like espresso, but my brother is a huge coffee fan so maybe I could make this for his birthday?
Coffee-Chocolate Layer Cake with Mocha-Mascarpone Frosting - Bon Appétit - in comments it says the frosting is lighter than the photo shows, more milk-chocolatey looking. Still sounds like a yummy recipe!
