Bow Tie Cakes Recipe
1 cup warm coffee
1 cup buttermilk

8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
6 tablespoons butter
3 cups confectioners' sugar
8 to 10 tablespoons hot water

White decorator's icing

Round and star pastry tips
Assorted fruit, optional

  • In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes (batter will be thin). Pour into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  • Cut cake into six rows, with seven 3-1/4-in. x 1-3/4-in. diamonds in each row (two rows are shown in diagram below). Place diamonds on a rack with a piece of waxed paper beneath.
  • For glaze, melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan or microwave. Remove from the heat; stir in sugar and water. Stir in additional water if needed to achieve a drizzling consistency. Spoon glaze evenly over top and sides of diamonds, letting excess drip off. Allow glaze to dry; repeat with a second coat. (Glaze may need to be warmed periodically to keep the proper consistency). When glaze is dry, place two diamonds tip to tip on dessert plates.
  • Using decorator's tip, make the knot in the center of the bow tie. Garnish plates with fruit if desired. Yield: 21 servings.
