SMS #7 - Guinness Gingerbread (or lack thereof)

Katie of Katiecakes chose Guinness Gingerbread from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book this week. I have to apologize for not participating this week. I don't drink. Briefly considered substituting ginger ale but figured it wouldn't be the same. Also, this week was hectic anyway with Mother's Day and my birthday just a few days apart. I always make my own birthday cake - this is probably weird to most people :o). Will post my "special interpretation" of the Black Forest Cake or Schwarzwalder Kirsch Torte soon (hint: white chocolate, black cherries, and alcohol-free).

Check out the SMS blogroll. The recipe for the Guinness Gingerbread can be found here.

  1. Happy belated Birthday! Hope it was a great one :) Looking forward to seeing your cake! I like making my own cake too but I'm usually not allowed to!

  2. Hope you birthday was wonderful, and that you enjoyed your cake; at least you got the flavore you wanted. The gingerbread was pretty good and several bakers substituted root beer with good success.

  5. Thank you all for your bday wishes. Will be posting the bday cake soon.
    From reading notes on the gingerbread from other SMS-ers, will definitely reconsider making this gingerbread using ginger ale in place of the guinness.
