Hi all.

My father has ordered a cake for his birthday on the 23th. He doesn't want a too sweet filling, so I suggested chocolate ganache, but now I'm wondering if I can add a splash of Kahlua to the warm cream and so make it a more 'grown-up' filling.

Has anyone tried this?

I'm mostly worried it will ruin the texture of the cream so it won't firm up.

I have brushed Jack Daniel's whiskey mixed with a little simple syrup on the cake layer, (water+sugar,warmed) then put the ganache on. Turned out yummy.

1-3 tbsp works fine - add it whilst the ganache is warm and it will blend fine - kahlua, grand marnier, Baileys, raspberry vodka and so on etc
