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 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 thereicon_smile.gif) - 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.

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!
