Celebrated father-in-law’s birthday in advance today. We bought this coffee cream cake off-the-shelf from Bengawan Solo.

Three layers of coffee sponge sandwiched together with coffee cream, garnished with walnuts, almond slices, pistachios, and chocolate curls. The cake has a pleasant coffee fragrance; the coffee cream seems to have ground coffee beans.

The cake is a little on the sweet side, but not overwhelmingly so. Its simple flavors reminds me of those old-fashioned coffee sponge cakes with coffee buttercream, very nostalgic!
