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.

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.

    Can the instant espresso be replaced by Nescafé? I’ve been trying to find a recipe for a cinnamon cake and I hope this is it, it looks delicious. I think I’ll do it tomorrow!

      Hi Iris,

      Absolutely! Let me know hoe it turns out. Happy Baking!! :)

        Hi Sommer!

        So I baked this cake before Christmas and it is absolutely fantastic (I used nescafé and it turned out delicious). My siblings and my mom (and I) love cinnamon so this is a fantastic cake for us. The only thing was that I only used 3 cups of powdered sugar for the frosting, I think 6 is too much and besides it hardened so I could easily frost the cake. My brother loved it so much that he asked me to bake another one and leave it as as his birthday present (I live in another town) and I must say the cake did not last 3 days, he almost ate it all by himself lol.
        Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Now is one of my favorites. I found instant espresso, I shall try that one and let you know the difference of taste once I do.

    I came here looking for some surprise cakes this Christmas, and I found the one for my kids.
    Thanks for sharing :)

    Thanks for sharing! Can this cake be made ahead for Christmas? If so, how would you recommend storing it to preserve flavors and texture?

    • Sommerposted December 22, 2016 at 11:57 pm Reply

      Hi Sean,

      You can make it 3-4 days ahead, and leave out at room temperature well covered. You can also make it further ahead and freeze it. Just make sure to wrap it very well. Happy Baking!

    How many cupcakes would you think this would make?  I’m making several different flavors for  a church celebration at our church, With vanilla and chocolate and needed another option, this seems perfect!
