Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray two 6 x 3 in. round baking pans with vegetable pan spray. In large bowl, combine cake mix, coffee, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed until moistened; beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Add hazelnuts and blend. Pour into prepared pans. Bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to cooling grid; cool completely.

Arrange cake on foil-covered cake circle; prepare for covering with rolled fondant by icing lightly with buttercream. Roll out reserved fondant to 1/4 in. thick; cover cake. Smooth, using Fondant Smoother if desired. For top and bottom borders, roll two 20 x 3/8 in. diameter logs; attach with damp brush.
