The Irish Car Bomb cake!!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

October 2009:  A while back I found a recipe for Irish car bomb cupcakes here. (If you don’t know what an Irish car bomb is, don’t feel bad.  It sounds awful to me.  It’s a shot of Bailey’s Irish cream and Irish whiskey dropped into a glass of Guinness.  However, the cupcake version is TO DIE FOR!!!)   I made them several times to rave reviews, and translated it into a cake version for my friend Jeannine’s husband.  Basically, it’s a chocolate cake with a Guinness (or any stout) base.  In between the layers of cake is a dark chocolate whiskey ganache (I usually use Jameson).  On the outside is a buttercream frosting made with Baileys.  Are you drooling yet?  You should be!  This cake was decorated using melted chocolate to make the letters, guitars and notes for a music lover.
