Comments
Every time I have made this I have had more of the coffee liqueur drizzle than was necessary. When I've tried to use it all, the excess seeps out the bottom and makes the cake messy. So less is better in this case. I have used cream cheese when I couldn't get marcarpone, but I much prefer the latter.

Good luck and good eating.
