Expert Tips

Pretty flower garnishes are edible decorations. You can find them at specialty food stores that carry cake-decorating supplies or near the cake decorations in your supermarket. Add a mint leaf to the flower garnishes for a fresh look.

For a less-intense coffee flavor, you can use dry instant coffee instead of the instant espresso.
