When it comes up in a cake filling...what exactly is it? I don't drink and have never used it before...so is it something you can buy in the grocery store, around the cooking supplies? Or do you go to a liqour store for it? Is it a cooking alcohol or a drinking alcohol? I feel dumb asking. icon_wink.gif

Starbucks makes a coffee liqueur, there is also one called Kalua.

I'm in a dry county so it is something I have to go to the Liquer store for, it's for drinking and baking. icon_wink.gif If you don't have any or don't want to use it, you could just use some strong coffee in place of it.

Great, thanks! I thought about the coffee instead, but I really had no idea if the kind mentioned in recipes was the same kind you drink, or a specific cooking ingredient I had yet to be exposed to. Sheltered, much? icon_razz.gif

Coffee, won't have the alcohol kick behind it, but I think it could work.

I use Kahlua flavored coffee syrups, typically DaVinci's brand as it's my favorite. Then I get the flavor but no alcohol to worry about. In fact, I'm doing a mocha wedding cake this weekend that I've used the Kahlua flavoring in and the scrap cake we tested was super yummy!
