Mini slice of a mini Devil's Food Cake

I decided to make tiny cakes...I think the thought came to me when I was trying to fall asleep one day last week. Anyway...


This tiny cake is sitting on a bread plate...if that helps you to visualize how small it is.


These are made from a slight adaptation of the Devil's Food Cake recipe in Baking Illustrated...I added more chocolate, lots of espresso powder and some Godiva and Starbucks Coffee liqueurs to the mix.


Then I made a mocha buttercream frosting.


From there, I spent a lot of time slicing and icing itty bitty cake layers. But they're so precious that it was worth the time.
