Just a quick thank you to Dawn at Novellas in New Paltz for allowing us to provide dessert to everyone at the Wedding Vendors of the Hudson valley meeting on Tuesday evening! Everything was fantastic and the space is beautiful! Be sure to check it out for your upcoming events!
In case you're wondering, the Wedding Vendors enjoyed a variety of Cake Devils sweets, including rainbow cookies, snickerdoodle cookies, soft molasses cookies, white chocolate & cranberry cookies during the event. They were also all given a cupcake in a box (some chocolate cake, some spiced Guinness cake) to take home... however, big surprise, none of them made it out the door! ;)
Spiced Guinness Cake
Did that your attention?
St. Patrick's Day was coming and I needed a quick cake for a friend. I thought that a Guinness Cake was quite appropriate given the upcoming holiday. I typically use Guinness to make a Chocolate Stout Cake, but had recently made so much chocolate cake, so I wanted to do something different.
Our new and exciting Spiced Guinness Cake was born! I made it on a whim as an experiment. Wow! Was I pleasantly surprised! It was DELICIOUS! And I don't even like beer. The cake was so moist and fluffy and just plain ol' YUMMY!
We typically pair our Chocolate Guinness cake with a Bailey's Irish Cream buttercream. In an effort to be different, I paired it with a spiced cream cheese buttercream. Such a great combo!!
If you're looking for a cake baked with beer, we highly suggest giving this a try! You'll find it on our flavors page shortly!
