I've bought a lot of cake recipe books throughtout the years but with so much information available and downloadable on the internet, it's not worth it.

I usually just find recipes online, and I have made margarita and cosmopolitan cupcakes from recipes I've found there. In fact, I am making margarita cupcakes today for a birthday tomorrow. Here are the ones I made last year. They were delicious!

I have that one and The Boozy Baker. I just bought them for inspiration. I have developed a multitude of alcohol recipes and those books really don't mesh with my baking philosophy. I don't add the alcohol just to say I did it (except Absinthe, which turned out incredible in spite of it starting as a novelty). In every case, the alcohol enhances the flavor and the combinations make for a better cake than if it was left out. If you want to add alcohol for the novelty, the books are fine. For fine recipes, no.
