Our sweet friend, Mrs. Jessica, had a birthday yesterday! Soooo... it was an excuse to make a cake ;).
Here is her chocolate mocha almond cake with dark chocolate covered espresso beans, chocolate curls and toasted ground almonds...
I met Mrs. Jessica at the new spouses orientation at the Air Force base when we moved here to the Midwest.
She and her husband have become dear friends to us!
Happy Birthday to the beautiful and very talented, Mrs. Jessica!!!!
