Chocolate Stout Cake Recipe

Chocolate Stout Cake Recipe
About two weeks ago my younger brother, Jared sent me a text me stating he had pink eye. I’m quite the germophobe, so I was immediately curious how he contracted it; he had no clue. Once I found out about his funky eye, I decided that I would make him a big, decadent, chocolate, layer cake…with chocolate stout. Jared often complains that he doesn’t get enough “play” on My Baking Addiction, so this Chocolate Stout Cake post is devoted to him and his unfortunate encounter with pink eye. His cake also kicks off an entire week of recipes featuring Stout beer as the star ingredient. Although I have expressed my dislike for alcohol in general, I am always compelled to purchase alcoholic libations that pique my interest for use in recipes. After posting the photo of this Chocolate Stout Cake on the My Baking Addiction Facebook page, it affectionately became known as the Pink Eye Cake, which is all kinds of hilarious and repulsive at the same time. If you enjoyed this recipe, you may like...

green I love The Muppets (and I mean I really love The Muppets). It’s hard not to be smitten with this great cover by Variety Magazine — flip an iconic face (and colour scheme) and a whole new perspective is born.

Because the other things hanging on that wall are dark brown, I decided to distress the wood with some dark brown and burgundy red.
