I have a question. I want to make a strawberry daiquiri cake for a friend who loves strawberry daiquiris..............if I make the WASC cake, could I replace the liquid in the cake with strawberry daiquiri mixer?
Or if there is a better way..........can you help me????????

Thanks for the help!!!!!!

That is what I was going to suggest you try. Replacing some of the liquid with that. The only thing is I don't know how strong of a strawberry flavor it would have... unless you used strawberry cake instead of the white cake. I like an intense flavor so I would opt for the strawberry cake. Or somehow incorporating some fresh strawberries in it.

I just saw a cake in the recipes section for Lemonade cake. They used frozen can of lemonade. Could you use a can of the strawberry Daiqui in the cake? I wouldn't waste the alcohol IN the cake as it will bake off.
Flavoring the frosting might work as well.

How about a rum cake with strawberry cream filling?

I am going to give advice that I am pretty sure will be ignored, but here goes anyway. If you are really trying to get the taste of a strawberry daquiri, starting with a cake mix will give you something that is WAY TOO sweet to taste anything like a strawberry daquiri.
The three tastes in a strawberry daquiri are lime, strawbeery and rum. To keep it ligh and " daquiri-esque", I would make a lime chiffon cake, soak it with a rum simple syrup and fill it with a fresh strawberry filling.

txkat, that sounds delicious. When you say rum simple syrup, are you referring to acohol or rum flavoring? I am doing a cake in a few weeks for a girl who loves daquiris and she told me to make any kind of cake I wanted so I'm thinking your suggestion may be a wonderful surprise for her.

rum simple syrup - 1 cup H20, 1 cup sugar - cook over medium heat until boiling. Turn off burner. Add 1/4to 1/2 c rum of your choice.

Brush ( or pour) over cake while still warm.

Help!!!! I am new to the baking thing but, I have been doing ok so far. I have just been asked to do a Barbie for a 4yr old birthday. I was wondering does anyone have a suggest of how I can replace Barbie's face with the little girls pic

Do you have access to a edible image printer? If you do, you could possibly transfer that and then try to attach the paper to the face. The only problem with that is the edible paper is crisp so you would have to soften the back of the paper enough to get it to bend around Barbie's face. The other alternative would be to sculpt the upper body instead of using a doll. That would be my suggestion.

By the way, your post came on the end of the daquiri cake post so I'm not sure you'll get many responses to your question. You may want to try to repost it as a new topic.

Good luck.
