Caramel drizzled mocha marble cake

Caramel drizzled mocha marble cake.

I was inspired to make this caramel drizzled mocha marble cake after a Saturday filed with coffee and all things coffee related. Last weekend was the London Coffee Festival, held in the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch. The older teen and I went last year and this year both girls accompanied me. Coffee is our fuel of choice so the chance to taste, sample and generally guzzle lots of the stuff thrilled us all no end. Cold brew coffee was everywhere. The place was awash with it. Cold brew coffee is edfferent, delicious in a totally new way. A drink made from the outer coating of coffee beans was what really blew mw away. On the Tesseire stand, as a way to showcase their new sirops from France they had this deliciously refershing drink. If only I knew how to make it.

I do, however know how to make cakes so, using the Teisseire gourmet drops I was given I have added a caramel drizzle to this mocha marble cake.
