Coffee & Walnut Birthday Cake

Recently my dad celebrated his birthday (I won't tell you the age!), and with him being a huge coffee lover, I made him this coffee and walnut cake from Nigella's 'Kitchen'. Funnily enough, at first the only coffee I could find was his extremely fragrant Starbucks coffee I bought him as a present, so I had to use some of that! Thankfully I found a cheaper brand to use in the icing.

Regardless, the icing turned out totally gorgeous and thick. Ironically, it was the cake itself which didn't taste quite coffee-ish enough... but the walnut chunks in the sponge added a lovely touch.
