Remove from pans and place on cooling rack to cool completely. For Mocha Frosting: COMBINE powdered sugar, cocoa and salt in a large bowl. Beat in butter with electric mixer on low speed. Gradually add coffee, vanilla and enough milk to make a smooth and spreadable frosting. Spread frosting between layers, on top and sides of cake. Garnish with chocolate decorator sprinkles.
