STEP THREE, FOUR & FIVE

(3) Fold in the chopped walnuts and spoon the mixture into the tin. Bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until well risen and a skewer comes out clean.

(4) When the cake is cold, beat the ingredients for the filling together in a bowl until you have a soft buttercream. Split the cake into two or three layers and then sandwich back together with the filling.

(5) Gradually mix the coffee liquid into the fondant icing sugar, adding more water, in drops, to form a thick icing.
