Happy birthday my friend: Coffee whole wheat entremets

This year I had a chance to make the birthday cake for my friend ^^.

 Because I wanted to be special so I used a lot of time for choosing the recipe. Finally I found this one, the coffee flavored entremets that made from whole wheat genoise. 
The taste is so intense, each bite is full of rich coffee flavor cream, and sweet chocolate taste. The texture of the cake is not simple, and it's the most important thing that I have to warn you ^^. you need to sprinkle the cake with a lot of syrup and "The cake needs time to rest overnight before eating, the whole wheat flour will be softened from syrup". Because when I assembled it, I really wanted to  try it, and I was disappointed, the cake is dry and too much texture. But my friend insisted me that I should give her this special cake, so I did. When my friend ate it, she called me by the phone and told me that the cake is soooooooo delicious, and told me to eat the cake again. Yes, the texture was right, not dry and very delicious, hehe. 
Now, I'm so happy with this cake, and I hope that you will love it too.
