This may be a silly question but...If I'm making a Kahlua filling, should I boil the Kahlua first to cook off the alcohol?

TIA!

Uh..why would you want to get rid of the alcohol?!?!

Just kidding...I don't know the answer but that was my first thought icon_smile.gif

I guess I'm wondering about underage eaters. icon_lol.gif

I get what you are saying with regard to underage - I had someone request a Bailey's filling for a friends cake who was in AA!!!!

I would suggest a coffee or mocha flavour rather than Kahlua - if this is for an underage client.

I made a cake once with Kahlua bavarian cream for a friends going away party. I wasnt sure of the rules so I also made a few cupcakes for the "under 21" crowd. The recipe I use only has something like 3 tablespoons of kahula for a filling that would fill at least 2 8inch rounds. I will let my kids have it, but I wanted to make sure I didnt upset anyone at the party.

I serve Kahlua cake to anyone. The amount of alcohol is negligible by the time it is distributed through the recipe. The only thing I wouldn't serve minors is my Kahlua SOAKED cake, where there is about half a 5th of Kahlua poured over the cake.

I agree with smbegg. If you are worried, divide the kahlua into the number of servings... not much. Also the kahlua is being served with food, not straight.
