  2. Drang - it is good, my friend Shannon has made it for her family and it's a favorite. To answer your question, it was Guinness in the can.

  3. Some Guinness for the cake, some for me. Then cake for me...

  6. og - I think I made this the night you and MC and Mr. B. and RichD came over to eat pasta after the gun show. It didn't last long, I remember that.

  7. I LOVE OG's comment! The cake sounds so delicious that I plan to make it this weekend. Question....what is sprinkled on the frosting? I am guessing ground nuts of some kind.? Can't wait to try this recipe!!! Thanks!

  9. Carol - it's shaved Cadbury "Flake" candy (from the U.K.). It's a dry flaky milk chocolate roll which in Ireland they'd crumble and serve on ice cream at the stands at the beaches up North.

    I find it at the World Market chain of stores.

  13. Yeh! Now I can start with Steak and Guiness pie (with all the trimmings a traditional delicacy over here), have Guiness and chocolate cake for afters. Then have a glass of something refreshing, Oh I know, how about a Guiness.

    Damn, it would be the perfect meal if only it had some bacon in it.

    Waiting, with bated breath, for the recipe.

  14. Oh and in polite society Cadbury's 'Flakes' are supposed to be stuck whole into the top of an ice-cream cone, then used as a spoon to eat your ice-cream.

    I admit this usually (OK, it's probably just me) results in half the flake and a dollop of ice-cream down your shirt. But who cares?

  15. I buy Guinness in the can just so I can hear the little gas bomb go off when I open it. But will also confess that I prefer Rasputin Russian Stout if available.

  16. These days 20 dollars worth of ammunition isn't much. Maybe it needs to be $50.

    Thanks and done, although being in For'n Parts I had to improvise on the ingredients a little. Fine sugar became icing sugar, which actually worked OK. Unfortunately I seem to have gone through four cans of Guinness to get the recipe done (spillage and what not, you know how it is?). Still it's good for you, we still get it prescribed here in the hospital. You should see some of the looks I get coming back from the pharmacy with a couple of four-packs :-)
