      I had some trouble with the icing as well. Took Sharlene's advice and used some cream to get the right consistency. Overall, the cake turned out nicely. I had some mixed reviews... my guy friends loved it and my girlfriends thought it was too bitter.

      My husband is a fan of dark chocolate and absolutely raved about this cake. I had to get out the scale to make it and I am used to measuring in cups not ounces, but it went together nicely. I never could get the chocolate to reach the right consistency. It seemed to seize up and never melt with the Guinness, so I added a few teaspoons of cream to thin it and it was fine. Overall an excellent cake with a rich taste--what you would expect from an expensive bakery.
