I’ve been waiting to make this cake, and finally it was near valentines day and my sisters birthday-done. A lover of chocolate and good beer a perfect combination. The finaI creation with pecans and Carmel whiskey frosting and butter cream frosting on top. I stopped at the liquor store and found a four pack of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, sounds perfect.
This recipe makes three 8 inch cakes, that’s alot of cake. I chopped some pecans and sprinkled them in between the layers with the Carmel Whiskey Frosting. Why stop there, the top layer is chocolate Buttercream frosting. WOW it was like a turtle pecan candy. this cake is so good, must find another reason to make very soon.
