Can anyone help? I've tried searching the forums without luck...
I would like to try and make an "adult" cake bite. Normally I take chocolate cake and then use either chocolate ganache or leftover frosting to make them and then dip in chocolate.
What kind of alcohol would I use do you think? And how would I incorporate it into the cake bite? If I baked a cake with the alcohol in the recipe, wouldn't it just evaporate out so to speak?
I did try once using a mudslide mix as the binder, but you really couldn't taste it.
simple syrup with alcohol added and brushed onto the cake top before frosting
How about if you add your alcohol to the buttercream and use that for your cake bites. I use Bailey's Irish Creme in my buttercream to ice cupcakes or brownies and it is very tasty. I have also added whiskey to ganache and you could definitely taste that. If you add the alcohol to the ganache after the chocolate melts, I wouldn't think the alcohol would evaporate.
Oh that's a good idea! I will have to try that!
I was also thinking I could make the cake bite like normal, then dip it in alcohol and then the chocolate, but wonder if the cake ball would fall apart before I got it in the chocolate.
