For filling, in a large mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and the 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur.

Stir in 1/2 cup of the whipped dessert topping.
Set aside.
For frosting, in a medium bowl combine remaining whipped dessert topping, the sour cream, and 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur.

Using a serrated knife, cut the angel food cake horizontally into three layers.
Place one layer on a serving platter and two layers on large dinner plates.
Using a long-tined fork or a skewer, poke holes in tops of all three layers.
In a small bowl combine the coffee and 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur; drizzle over all layers.
Spread the first layer with half of the filling.
Add a second layer and spread with the remaining filling.

If using, drizzle dessert plates with the remaining sauce; cut cake into wedges and place wedges on top of sauce.
