Decadent ultra moist Cinnamon Dolce Latte Cake with Mascarpone Frosting. Our top cake this season!
Obviously if I deem a recipe “blog-worthy” and share it on A Spicy Perspective, I think it’s pretty exceptional.
But this cake. THIS CAKE. Is utterly, devilishly, outlandishly divine!
In fact, it is absolutely my current favorite cake here on ASP, with this one as a close second.
If you plan on making one cake this holiday season… Guys, this is the cake.
The story behind my Cinnamon Dolce Latte Cake with Mascarpone Frosting is not that exciting. But trust me, not everything wonderful has to come from sensationalized beginnings.
I usually sneak a coffee once a week when I go the the grocery store. This is not my only coffee of the week, but it’s the one cup loaded with sugar, flavor syrups, and cream.
A few weeks ago I decided to treat myself to a Cinnamon Dolce Latte from the grocery store Starbucks. As I was sipping my hot latte and perusing the cheese section, my eyes scanned over the mascarpone cheese.
In an instant, I let out a gasp loud enough to turn heads as I made a mental connection that mascarpone cheese and Cinnamon Dolce Lattes belonged together… Preferably in cake.
That’s it. I came home and started testing recipes until this little beauty came into being.
Cinnamon Dolce Latte Cake with Mascarpone Frosting is my pride and joy this season. Everyone that was fortunate enough to have a taste at my house, swooned in momentary ecstasy.
It offers just enough cinnamon, cream, and espresso flavor without being overpowering. The texture is ridiculously silky with a fine tender crumb.
In fact, this cake is so delicate you must place parchment paper circles in the bottom of each cake pan to flip the cakes out in one piece.
And the frosting?
Two words… Spreadable debauchery.
We think Cinnamon Dolce Latte Cake with Mascarpone Frosting needs to make an appearance at your house this holiday season.
Fancify the cake by adding plastic christmas tree cake toppers for a look that matches its festive flavor!
