Instructions
  • Before assembly, make sure that the Chocolate Irish Stout Cake has cooled to room temperature.
  • Trim the tops off both cakes to create a flat surface, and then cut each in half horizontally. Place a top half upside down onto a cake plate or platter.
  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the Irish Whiskey-Smoked Caramel Sauce evenly over the cake layer.
  • Divide the Bailey's Irish Pastry Cream into four equal parts. Place 1 portion of the pastry cream on top of the caramel, and spread evenly with an offset spatula to a half-inch of the edge of the cake. Top the pastry cream with another layer of the cake and repeat with the caramel, pastry cream and cake layer three more times.
  • To garnish the cake, make a pattern with the remaining caramel sauce over the top layer of pastry cream. Garnish with some toasted oats (flaked oats toasted in a 350°F/177°C for 8 – 10 minutes and cooled) or cacao nibs.
