Cake Number 15: Guinness and Chocolate Cupcakes (Ireland)

Guiness Cupcakes1

I know it’s nowhere near St Patrick’s Day but I can never resist a Guinness cake – and I’ve just bought a new dual-icing piping kit and wanted to try it out.  And it works!

I decided to only make two cupcakes, as my Dad (who’s my main cake tester) is offshore, so I just made one for me and one for my Mum.  Plus, I’ve applied for Air Traffic Controller training, and I didn’t want to spend the entire day in the kitchen, as I need to study for my aptitude tests next week (wish me luck!)

The cupcake I’ve tried is delicious.  Moist (and I hate using that word!), chocolately, and lovely.  Fingers crossed the other one tastes just as good for my Mum!
