Everyone loves sheet cakes, super easy to make and no faffing around with layers. They are perfect for feeding a crowd or for bake sales.
This one is rich with chocolate and coffee and makes a handsome partner to good latte or Espresso.
You can swap in for a regular chocolate ‘buttercream‘ if you wish.
If you know in advance you are going to make this, I would pop a tin of coconut milk into the fridge to chill. Unless you use a reliable brand like I do I know I will always find a solid top to my tinned coconut milk.
