Now this is my kind of beer - a moist chocolate cake filled with luscious Baileys Irish Cream ganache covered in white modeling chocolate and topped off with some whipped cream.
More of these beers touched my lips than any of the liquid variety ever has. I'm not a fan of the foam topped drink, but when I was asked to create these cakes for Tablespoon.com, I knew exactly how to go about it. A few years ago Amanda from I am Baker created some Green Beer Mug Cupcakes which I used as my inspiration. Her mugs were so adorably cute for St. Patrick's Day.
I was asked to make my beer mug cakes look more like actual beer mugs. In order to do that I needed more height than I could get using cupcakes, so I had to get creative.
