Chocolate cake with Espresso Cream Cheese frosting

Basically with this cake you make your favorite chocolate cake, it can even be a box if you want. I used my personal favorite vegan chocolate cake recipe.  For the frosting you can use your favorite buttercream, I used a vegan cream cheese buttercream which in place of the milk or water it called for I used cold espresso. After frosting the cake I topped it with crushed coffee beans and dark chocolate. I guess could also mix that in with the frosting, but I always take the messy route. I thought the flavors all paired really well together and I enjoyed a slice with a nice hot cup of black coffee while watching Twin Peaks. It was a pretty magical evening.
