My friend's favorite drink is lemonade & raspberry vodka. I was thinking of making a lemon cake and soaking it with the rasp vodka but i'm unsure of how to do this without making a mushy cake!
My questions are : how much do i use to soak and how long?
Should I just use it baked in the cake instead?
Will it give me troubles with decorating? (i'd like to use fondant)
I dont want to cake to be over powering but i want her to take a bite and be reminded of her 'staple' drink.
maybe just soaking it with a raspberry simple syrup is a better idea. the vodka might be a little strong. that sounds like a great drink and a really good cake combo- raspberry and lemon.
Oh i didn't even think of that! that sounds great!
is there a certain amount i should use? I'm going to try and make a 'birthday giftbox' cake for her and i'm just hoping to not make it all soggy!
I really don't know anything about adding vodka to your cake, but it sure does sound really good!!
I used to make a lemon raspberry cake. I used a vanilla cake and brushed the layers melted lemonade concentrate and raspberry syrup. I always made it a day in advance to help the wettness to distribute so that the cake wasnt soggy.
