Good question, recently there have been studies on how alcohol evaporates and these studies produced results very different to what was previously believed.
Check out this link for the information:

I found it to be a real eye opener.

Thank you for posting that -- I had seen a whole segment done on TV and when I tried to explain it to people they thought I had misunderstood! HA! icon_confused.gif It was my understanding that the fumes essentially burn off but the essence of the alcohol remains. Anyway, thanks again for posting that article! icon_smile.gif

Bumping up this post because I'm looking for some real "knock you out" recipes icon_wink.gif

Something that you can really taste the liquor in, I'm planning a cake for a guy, so is there something a little more substancial than irish cream, etc.?

I recently did a B52 cake that was plenty potent. It had layers with Irish Cream, Kahlua and Grand Marnier. Very Delicious but you knew it was booze filled.

I've made a Mimosa (orange juice and champagne) cake a couple times...it's divine. The first time I doctored a cake mix, the next time I doctored a scratch yellow cake. Both tasted good-depends on the texture you're going for.

For one white cake mix, follow box instructions except sub dry champagne and milk for the water (3/4 c champagne, the rest milk), then added 3 tsp of Lorann orange oil (one dram is 1 tsp), ½ tsp citric acid crystals and a little orange color. Then fill the cake with white chocolate mousse, and frost with buttercream. Mmmmmmmm, goooooooood.

I'm glad to see this thread! I've got some ideas brewing now, just need some guinea pigs!

Oooooh!!! This is a thread I could really sink my teeth into.. What about a limoncello cake.. white cake soaked with limoncello simple syrup with spiked lemon cream (thinkin Absolute limon of something) frosted with lemon buttercream..

Or a Mohito.. A white cake with lime zest added and then drizzled with a rum infused simple syrup filled with sweetened whipped cream with fresh mint and lime zest added and frosted with something good.. a whipped butter cream with lime juice and zest added..

What about using some Malibu Rum. They have all kinds of different flavors now. I know that Malibu rum and amaretto go great together with pineapple and cranberry. Yummy!

I have made a mudslide cake. It was delicious!!

Use a regular boxed cake mix (I used chocolate) and instead of using water, I used mudslide mix (the kind with the khalua already in it). Then when making the icing, instead of water or milk, I used the same mudslide mix again (it just didn't turn out white, so I colored the frosting).

I LOVE THIS POST!!! (I'd love some recipes too, please icon_biggrin.gif

I've made a coconut rum cake but to be honest I can't remember how icon_redface.gif I just kind of tossed a whole bunch of stuff together. It tasted great but the rum could have been stronger in it.
