For the sponge -
200g butter
200g self raising flour
200g sugar
4 tbsp coffee essence
4 eggs 
2tbsp vanilla essence
2tsp baking powder

For the icing - 
75g butter
250g icing sugar
1tbsp coffee essence
2 tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 160'C
 Put all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until well combined
I like to use an electric whisk for around 5 minutes 
 Line 2 8inch tins with greaseproof paper or baking parchment and separate mixture
 Place in the over for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
Mix the ingredients for the icing in a bowl and beat until well combined and of a good consistency
Once the sponge is cool, spread on icing with a palette knife for the filling and on top. Decorate with walnut halves and/or chocolate coffee beans voila, tuck in :)
