I have been following the thread with all the different cake flavors and recipes, there are so many I want to try!!!

Here's my question; So many of the recipes call for alcohol, for example the Mexican Vanilla Kahlua cake, has anyone ever substituted a Torani type syrup (used for coffee drinks & italian sodas) or even Loranns flavorings like "Champagne".

I have the Torani Kahlua that I would like to try but I just wanted to see if it had been tried by someone with a little more experience than me!

Thanks for any help you can give!

Yes, I've used the flavored syrups along with the drink mixers (the ones you usually mix with alcohol to make a drink). I tend to substitute it one for one (i.e. one cup of syrup for one cup of the alcohol called for) but then add something to make sure there's enough flavor. For Kahlua, I would add some instant coffee to the syrup and make sure it's dissolved before adding. For margarita flavor, I'd add lime juice, etc.....
