Guinness Cake

I always thought that I’d be making a pint of Guinness cake as a grooms cake, but our friends’ Irish pub birthday party this past Saturday presented the perfect occasion to create this cake. If you ever find yourself in Hoboken, NJ – go visit Carpe Diem for perfect pints & excellent pub food!

Since the pub’s true birthday is 7/15, I included 15 clovers on the board, three of which were gold four leaf clovers, as the pub was celebrating it’s 3rd birthday.

The cake consisted of alternating layers of devil’s food cake & yellow butter cake that was filled and frosted with Bailey’s Irish Cream buttercream. A combination of chocolate & vanilla fondant was used to decorate the exterior of the cake.
