    I was so excited when my sister sent me this book as a gift. I love baking and cakes are a specialty of mine. I was feeling very brave when I decided to make 2 of the recipes for a friend’s Wedding Reception.
    The first was the Mudslide Cake. It looks so chocolaty in the picture, but I followed the recipe EXACTLY and ended up with a walnut colored cake. It tasted all right, but I would not call it chocolate at all, and did not feel right bringing it to the reception to serve to guests. I ended up making a very tasty mudslide cake using my tried and true Fudge Cake recipe which I just modified a little. I used the book’s recipe for the icing and drizzle and that was delicious! My modified Mudslide Cake was a big hit with the women at the reception.
    Then I made the Honey Spice Beer Cake. When it came out of the oven, this was the UGLY duckling of cakes. Part of the cake looked like it was venting steam out during the baking process. When the timer went off, that area of the cake was still completely raw. The surface of the cake was wavy and bumpy looking. I left the cake in for an additional 12 minutes to try to get that area to cook a little. When it finally came out of the oven, the edges were crispy, the top was wavy and that problem area was still a little mushy. I was going to scrap the whole cake, but when I took it out of the pan, I tasted a little piece and it was actually very tasty! I had to carve the cake into a rectangular shape on a 1/4 sheet board. But once I iced it, no one even knew the difference. The honey and lemon go so well with the spices. And the Honey Beer Frosting added a little more richness. The mixed nuts on top added a salty crunch. Despite it’s rough beginnings, this was one of the tastiest cakes I’ve ever made.
    The book is really cute, clever and original. But so far the recipes I’ve tried could use some improvement.

    My fiancee got me this cookbook for my birthday. She knows how much I love to bake and what a sweet tooth I am and when she saw a review for it in the Metro paper, she knew I would love it. :) Of course, she knows me so well. haha The book is awesome! There are a bunch of traditional dessert recipes with an alcoholic twist to them as well as some newly concocted ones modeled after popular cocktails. So far, I’ve only tried one recipe which is the Fuzzy Naval cupcakes. They were delicious! I can’t wait to try another recipe! If you love baking and being adventurous in the kitchen (and you like a good drink, too), what better way to get the best of both worlds and combine cakes with booze? I would definitely recommend this book! It not only has easy to follow recipe instructions, but it has great pictures, and recommendations for each recipe as to what occasions they’d be good for. They even go over brief explanations of each type of alcohol as well as a lil history tidbits and facts. Oh and they rate each one on a booze meter as to how much alcohol each recipe will contain. Definitely happy with this book. :)
