A simple cake for it for a small gathering filled with cinnamon and cocoa. The black cocoa is from the brand Van Houten, but if you can’t find it, then replace the amount with regular cocoa.

½ TSP VANILLA PASTE
2 TBSP LUKEWARM COFFEE

Whisk the butter creamy in a bowl.

Add icing sugar and the two types of cocoa and whisk first at low speed to prevent the cocoa powder from going everywhere and then at the highest level for a few minutes.
