does anybody know if the pink champagne cake recipe is safe for kids or recovering alcholics? i would love to use this recipe for a bridal shower, but im worried it will not be appropriate for some of the company. Any advice would be appreciated. thanks

I believe most of the alcohol will evaporate off during baking.

Yes it will evaporate, but still leaves the champagne taste. Probably not the best choice for recovering alcoholic, in my opinion.

I agree with fabray13. Kids don't really like alcohol in cakes, but if it's family, I would not do it out of respect for the recovering alcoholic. Kids can always be served chocolate or vanilla cupcakes.

Apparently, there's some disagreement about whether EtOH burns out or not:

From reading the various evidence, I'd say it doesn't. However, you can form your own opinion.

I agree, the flavor of alcohol is just as bad for an alcoholic. That's why you don't see too many recovering alcoholics buying non-alcoholic beer and wine, too close for many.

What about a pink velvet cake? Same color but no need to worry about the booze flavor.

We use a champagne flavor with a little bit of strawberry daiquiri mix (no alcohol) for the pinkness. I don't think it tastes much like actual champagne, but people really like it.
