So, I'd like to spike my cake with a hazelnut liqueur for a lingerie shower I'm going to next week, but since I'm covering the cake in fondant, I'm not sure if the extra moisture would affect the decorations in the cake in any way. Should I try adding the liqueur before the cake is actually baked, or just go ahead and spike it afterwards? Ugh, I've never done this with fondant before .... thanks for any suggestions!

Add it to the cooled cake. Either spray it with a misting bottle or brush it on uniformly. It won't affect your fondant at all.

I made a mudslide cake out of the WASC cake. I added vodka and kaluah to the batter in the place of some of the water. It was the BEST cake ever. It turned out of the pans beautifully and was a breeze to decorate. I will be using something to spike my cakes more often!!!

Ive done the same... in the batter. Then also made a simple syrup with grand mariner and soaked the bottom layer. the top layer I flipped upside down... brushed very well let set for about 10 min then flipped. So it wouldnt soak through to the fondant.

Mmmm IM going to have to try the hazelnut liquer.. sounds yummy
