Ok so I've been browsing recipes for my mum's birthday and came across a Pimms cake. My question is - will the alcohol cook out of the cake? If I want to keep the aloholic content would it be better to add the Pimms to the frosting? And, if it's better to add it to the frosting does anyone have any ideas as to how much I should use? All advice is appreciated.
You could soak the cake with alcohol, just drizzle a bit on the cake before you fill and let it soak in. Just don't put too much on, you don't want it soggy.
Soggy is my main worry... I highly doubt my mum would enjoy soggy cake. Hmmm... I think I may just put some in the icing - maybe lemonade cake with strawberry and Pimms frosting.
Brush it on or use a spray bottle.
I offer many cakes with alcohol, but every one of them is different.
Most of the alcohol will bake out, but the flavor will remain.
Alcohol in icing is no different proof, and usually much less, than vanilla extract. Just add to taste.
Thanks for the tips scp1127
