I'm making a pouring beer cake this week. I've seen lots of pics where white BC is used to make the foam usually with a round tip, but my beer cake is Guinness so big white foam doesn't work so well. Does anyone have tips for making Guinness foam?

Hmmmm, could you make a small *white cake* and using a round cutter - cut out the shape you need?
That way you would get the bubble effct as the white cake would have small air bubble texture when looking at it disected.
You could always freeze what you do not use - or make cake balls.

Or - fondant -
Once in the shape you need, you could poke little holes in it to give the impression of bubbles.
You could use a BRAND NEW babies comb sterilized of course before you use get all the little holes instead of doing them individually -

Might this be for St Patricks day? icon_wink.gif
If so you could make grreen cake balls from the left over white cake- icon_lol.gif

Hello! Marshmellows work very well. If your familiar with making mmf then you can complete the first few steps (water marshmellows) don't melt all the way, then pour into a greased cup or mold. After it dries remove the whole thing and place on top of cake. Hope this helps.............

That marshmello idea sounds really good. So it will harden enough so that it won't break when I'm taking it out of the mold? I would be using a 6inch round pan

I also live in Georgia. What part are you from?

Sorry for the late reply. I should not break as if will be the consistancy of a semi hardened marshmellow.
I live about 20 miles east of the I-75 near Cordele. How about you?
