Fat free dairy sour cream 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Coffee liqueur 2 Tablespoon
10 inch angel food cake 1 (round)

Directions

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

Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended and smooth.

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.

Set aside.

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.

Frost cake with the frosting. (If desired, cover and chill up to 4 hours.)

If desired, just before serving, drizzle top and sides with some Mocha Fudge Sauce.

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

If desired, garnish with flowers.
