I would like to know how can I make a baileys cake because a customer ask me for one and never do it.

I try to do it a pound cake and with syrup after instead of fillings because that's what she likes

Need help!!! Anyone??

I did one but came to sweet like a white pound cake with syrup after cook instead of fillings

For my Bailey's cake I use the liqueur as the liquid in my cake recipe and bake as usual. So if your cake recipe calls for 1 cup milk, use 1 cup Bailey's. I like to reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe by 1/4 cup or so when I do this to help cut the sweetness.

Instead of using Bailey's to brush on the cake like a syrup, I use whiskey. Irish Cream has a whiskey base and so the sharper taste of the whiskey blends with the Bailey's in the cake itself without making it too sweet.

Hope that makes sense, I am bad at explaining!
