Does anyone have suggestions for filling and icing? I will be making a 2 tier cake.
I've used chocolate ganache and chocolate raspberry ganache.
How ironic I saw this topic. When asking my dad what type of cake he wanted for his birthday, he flippantly replied "Guinness".
He's irish and a big guiness drinker, and was not being serious, but I googled it anyway thinking there's a recipe for everything!
So, I am going to surprise him with one, and will try a cream cheese icing for filling and light icing, with a chocolate ganache overlay. I've never had this cake before, much less heard of it, so I hope it's a good combo!

Ohh.. I am so going to try making one of these soon
It's actually very good! IMO the cake doesn't taste like chocolate or Guinness. Still good!
there is a guiness pudding. I can't remember which site. recipezaar or allrecipes or type in guiness pudding.
I have made this cake too - the one from Epicurious. It's very good.
can you use margarine instead of butter in the cake recipe?
Food.com has a bunch of recipes for Guinness items! I made Guinness cupcakes and Guinness ice cream for my FIL's birthday last year...they were both great! I think Emeril is where the ones I made came from.
Good Luck! It's really fun doing something new and different!

I'd stick with butter.. margarine has a lot of water in it.
Chocolate mousse is an excellent filling for this cake. I just made it for DH's birthday.. a thin baked layer of chocolate stout cake (1/2 -3/4 inch) in a springform pan.. cool and then top with chocolate mousse to the top of the pan and chill for an hour at least and serve.. delicious with a drizzle of ganache and fresh sweetened whipped cream.
