My cake flavor list is forever a work in progress, and currently I'm trying to develop a 'top shelf' list (ie cakes with liquor). I try to offer very different, unusual flavors, as I seem to have a lot of customers who really appreciate being able to choose something out of the norm.

So, I have a few ideas already. Some I've tried, some I haven't. I'll list those here, but if anyone has any suggestions of something you've made, had, or would like to try - PLEASE share! I know everyone here is very creative!

Here's what I've come up with so far (remember, I'm going for the unexpected here!):

Orange Galliano cake (aka The Harvey Wallbanger)
-made with vodka, orange juice and Galliano liqueur

Baileys Buttershots cake
-made with Irish Cream and Butterscotch schnapps

Campari cocktail cake
-made with grapefruit and blood orange juices and Campari

Pink Champagne cake
-made with, of course, pink champagne

Green Fairy cake
-made with Pernod (an anise-flavored decendant of absinthe)

Grasshopper cake
-made with Creme de Menthe and Creme de Cacao

Margarita cake
-made with Tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice

Any suggestions for other flavors are more than welcome!

I love the idea of Pina Colada (thank you, Squirrley for the recipe!), White Russian and Strawberry Daiquiri cakes! How does Disaronno Chocolate cake sound?

You guys are GREAT!

Steph,

Your cakes sound wonderful. Are you using a basic cake base to start and then adding additional ingredients from there? Are these cakes dense enough for carving and decorating?

How about my favorite frozen drink--a BBC. It is bananas, Bailey's and coconut cream. Very fattening but oh so yummy! With a banana buttercream icing it should be out of this world! icon_smile.gif

Darra Posted 21 Apr 2006 , 2:56pm

BELLINI TORTE!!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif vanilla cake layers brushed with a bit of peach schnapps, filled with peach mousse and frosted with champagne buttercream!!!!

cindy6250 Posted 21 Apr 2006 , 2:56pm

Has anyone ever had Blackberry wine cake? It is really good. I had some last year at Christmas.
It's a very deep red color and had the wine in the cake and the glaze that was poured on top. Don't know how it would do for a layer cake though, as it is very moist.

FunCakesVT Posted 21 Apr 2006 , 6:01pm

I, for one, and very glad it is Friday because I am getting thirsty! Adventurous will come next, so I'll have to test out a recipe or two...how about a chocolate and wine cake?? any idea on how to achieve such a thing?

qtkaylassweets Posted 21 Apr 2006 , 6:06pm

These all sound delish!!! I think I have to make a stop at the liquor store!!!

missnnaction Posted 21 Apr 2006 , 6:06pm

I use some type of liquor in almost all of my baking...my favorites are Disorrona, peach schnapps and butterscotch schnapps...I also use the butterscotch in my peanut butter cookies...it gives them a more creamy smooth feel...if that makes sense...

KittisKakes Posted 21 Apr 2006 , 6:08pm

Just reading this post blew my diet!!!! Actually, I'm going to a wine fest this weekend. One of the vineyards makes some awesome wines with peaches, raspberries and blueberries. So if you do figure out how to do the wine cake - let us know!!!
