St Patricks Day - Take 2

Well... I really can't complain lol. My cakes came out just like I wanted them too. It was actually a littler easier than I expected. I can't wait for Baba to come home and see them!

That's right.. A Guinness Cake lol. If you're interested in the recipe, it's linked here (and actually may be below in the menu post too). I did not use the substitutions mentioned (ie I used regular butter and sour cream). And... it is possibly the easiest cake recipe I have made. Seriously. Fast too... Took almost no time at all!

I did not use the icing recipe mentioned though... I did a basic butter cream icing. The wilson one that I've made before (linked here) only I added a little bit of Guinness at the end for some colour!

You are so domestic. I never make anything.

I can't tell if that picture is making me hungry or thirsty....

Those mugs you have certainly do conjure up some great memories for me though. ;)

Christy - I don't know how domestic I am... I just enjoy cooking. One of my cousins makes the best cakes and has gotten me excited about making stuff like this. I know I won't get to her level, but it is fun!

Sabiwabi - LOL. I got the mugs at Spencers oddly enough. I'd intended to make these for Jas' bday and didn't have time... so just gave him the glasses alone.
