I'm making a Guinness choc. cake for a friend but since I've never tried one, and I don't like Guinness, how do I decide on a filling??
Any suggestions, I'm a bit at a loss....
Maybe use a chocolate filling...it doesnt have to be a heavy flavor though...or even vanilla...maybe make a guiness flavor...
I made a plain chocolate guiness cake once for work (alcohol infused baked goods tend to go over well there) - I personally don't drink so I wasn't crazy about the flavor but not put off either - I also think any type of chocolate filling or ganache would work very well with it.
Wow - that is a stumper! Good luck!
That cake has been one of my best sellers, as well as the family fave here. I have filled it with cheesecake filling, Oreo filling, regular bc, as well as the chocolate icing that I normally ice it with. I use Baker's One Bowl Chocolate Frosting right off the box. It is like eating homeade fudge! Chocolate lover's dream!
I was going to suggest a white choc. mousse or cheesecake mousse made with Rich's bettercreme and either white choc. pudding mix or cheesecake pudding mix. I find that either of these two fillings seem to go with just about ANY cake flavor. They're mild but delicious in flavor but rich, yet light at the same time!
