I've just baked Nigella's chocolate Guinness Cake and i have to admit that it is very good! I was skeptical at first thinking that cos it contains Guinness stout it might taste weird. I don't drink any alcoholic drinks (with the exception of ice-wine which is my fave! hahahaha) and beer to me taste horribly bitter! But since everyone on their food blog vouch for her Chocolate Guinness Cake, i just had to try. I did the cupcakes version though. In case you are wondering, recipe from her book "Feast". Yes, i have most of her books except for "How To Eat" (i think..) which i do not have. (remember i said i am a fan of hers..hahahaha).
I'm not going to type out her recipe..too time consuming for me. Here's the link to this 2 sites which detailed recipe outlined:-
Tim Norton's blog and the link to original recipe here. and Jo's blog "Sugar & Everything Nice" and i think she tweaked the recipe though..link here.
I did not use the original cream cheese icing. But instead i used chocolate buttercream icing called "Bill's Chocolate Buttercream Icing" from Bill who posted it on Rose Levy's site. Rose Levy is the author of Cake Bible and her website is really very informative!
Photos coming up later...photog busy with her school tests..:)

About Me: Faithy
Hi, I'm Faithy. Faithy is my alter-ego. I was told back then when internet first started that it was dangerous to put your real name on the web...LOL.. (seriously not kidding!). So it was how this name Faithy came about and has stuck with me ever since. And as a matter of fact, I like it better than my real name..esp when I share the exact same name as my sister.. :D
Anyway, I started my blog initially on vox as a way to remind myself what i have baked and hopefully to see some progress along the way too..:)
