In large mixing bowl cream 1/2 cup butter. Gradually add sugar, beating

and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk,

1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder,
or whole espresso coffee beans
1/2 of a good-quality, moist, supple vanilla
bean, split lengthwise

While cake layers are baking, scald the cream; add 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder or espresso beans, the vanilla bean, and the cinnamon

confectioner's sugar. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
