"Bloggers and bakers have taken spiked cakes to trend-worthy status in recent years, and authors Castella and Stone promote 'fun baking' using alcohol--including beer, wine, and spirits--in traditional and creative ways. More than 100 recipes are categorized in four sections: Classic Booze Cakes (including a tiramisu and a rum cake), Cocktail Cakes (such as the Harvey Wallbanger); Cake Shots (with selections like jelly cake shots and Long Island iced tea cakes); and Cakes with a Twist (taking classics up a notch, such as a carrot cake made with 151-proof rum). The introduction includes a clever 'Booze Cake Rating System' broken down by 'Lightweight,' 'Feeling It,' and 'Totally Tipsy.' Recipes include easy-to-follow numbered steps, and sidebars are informative--and entertaining--including information on cakes in literature and creative ingredient substitutions. Recipes for homemade liqueurs and additional treats such as cream puffs and gingersnaps round out this well-designed--and beautifully photographed--title that makes a perfect summer gift. (Aug.)"
