Coffee and Walnut Layer Cake

Unfortunately the hectic university schedule has meant that I haven't been able to blog for a while, but when I popped home last weekend I managed to fit in a spot of baking. My grandad has been a bit under the weather recently so I thought I'd make him his favourite cake; coffee and walnut. However, instead of making the traditional type where everything is mixed into the same layer, I thought I'd separate the cake into three different layers of coffee, walnut and vanilla. As a result, when you cut through the cake you can see the defined layers in each slice, with each layer sandwiched with coffee buttercream.
