Coffee Walnut Cake & Kahlua Buttercream

I baked this cake because I still have some balance Kahlua from the Macarons Tiramisu cake that I made earlier.

Coffee cake adapted from Jane's corner but omitted the cocoa powder, solely added coffee powder only. Since I don't really like to eat sweet cake, I just apply a thin layer of Kahlua buttercream, you may double up the buttercream recipe if you prefer sweeter.

Hi Sonia

Wonderful cake. I am wondering if the cream is too sweet as the sugar content as compare to the butter is almost half. Any chance to reduce it?
