I made it for my mother in-laws birthday because I know how much she likes cappuccino/espresso. I had to substitute the espresso powder (which I never heard of) for FINELY ground espresso from Starbucks. I was a little concerned that it might end up gritty but it didn't. It tasted great! I work at a Salon and the employees and customers all loved it and wanted the recipe. The cake was gone by the end of the day. If I would change anything I would have added more espresso to the cake. I could taste it more in the icing then the cake itself. The semi sweetened crushed chocolate was really good because you could taste little chocolate chunks throughout the cake. Very Good!
