I just learned that the 190 proof Everclear is illegal here in Minnesota (and several other states). The 151 is ok though. Learn something new every day! icon_lol.gif

Legal in GA, as far as I know...so how many bottles do I need to mail out?

The reason Everclear is illegal some places is that it's used in making methamphetamines. I used to work at a liquor store in TX and we had a limit of one bottle per person per day, per state law. People used to walk in, pick it up, and then run straight out of the store without paying. We ended up having to keep it behind the counter.

For the person who asked about using white rum, rum is usually 80 proof and so is regular, cheap vodka...which I use for painting and it works fine. Rum has a flavor and vodka doesn't but I doubt it would leave much flavor behind.

I'm not a drinker, (some cake days I wish I was) but you say it doesn't have a flavor... but after it has evaporated, does it smell like alcohol? I usually use vanilla since I don't have vodka sitting around the house, and my cakes always smell so yummy because of the vanilla (or lemon). Would the vodka or everclear leave a alcohol smell?

No, it doesn't leave a smell or taste, it evaporates. I have used the 80 proof stuff, and the everclear works a lot better for me. I am used to how it works/reacts.

You should use vodka because it keeps it dry ..You can use grey goose vodka..It is good in taste and will give good flavor.

I've read in quite a few posts that Vodka and gel colors work well to paint on fondant. I'm making an acoustic guitar cake and want to give it the yellow wood streaked look. I've played around with it and it stays sticky. I've tried more Vodka and less but it doesn't really dry. Any advice?
