The decoration for this cake was inspired by the majolica porcelain stand on which it's placed. Much simpler than it looks, this is a mocha genoise soaked with coffee syrup and iced lavishly with mocha buttercream.
I have made this many, many times and everyone LOVES this! Occasionally I am asked to make this for a special occasion too. The most difficult part is finding shelled raw pistachios. Also use 2 days time to make all the different parts and then assemble it right before party time! Now if I could find the Majolica Cake Stand

I can't believe this recipe is still online! I made this in 03 for my graduation cake and from what i remember it was very good. It took me a qhile to make. and I split it into 2 days. Would definitely make again!
