      1 ts Coffee zest (see note)

  Pour cream into a well-chilled mixing bowl.  Beat in an electric mixer
  fitted with chilled beaters or whip attachment.  Stir in the
  confectioner's sugar and cocoa and beat on medium speed until the
  cream begins to thicken. Add the coffee zest and liqueur.  Continue

  whipped cream.  Starting 1/2 inch from the edge, pipe a circle of
  cream around the top of the layer. Fill center of the circle with
  additional cream, smoothing surface with a large metal offset
  spatula.  Repeat with the second and third layers, placing them cut
  side up. Arrange the top layer cut side down, aligning layers so the
  sides of the cake are even.
  Empty the remaining whipped cream into the pastry bag.  Pipe 1/2 inch
  whipped cream dots on the top layer, beginning at the outer edge.
  Each dot should touch the preceding one, forming a ring.  Continue

  This cake will keep for up to three days.
