Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
All I can say is this product review has to be a favorite. Cakes Under the Influence offered me an opportunity to review their Entertainer Baking Kit. The premise behind it is to bake cakes infused with your favorite cocktail mix. How could I say no to that? As you know, I add wine to many of my marinades and sauces so I was all over this.
What is Cakes Under the Influence?
The Entertainer Baking Kit creates a fun looking tray of 12 adult cupcakes. This adult dessert idea mashes up cakes and cocktails for delicious tasting margarita cupcakes or martini shaped cupcakes. The baking kit comes with everything you need for a dozen tasty treats. Note: You can make these non-alchoholic as well.
Here is what I got in my Entertainer Baking Kit:
12 Silicone Stands – The blue stands help keep the molds and papers in place so they don’t slide all over. They are made of FDA food safe silicone.
Also included in my kit was one of their baking mixes. The baking mix was vanilla flavored and all it took to make my batter was their mix and your favorite alcohol. The package suggests to use 6 ounces of alcohol with 2 ounces of a mixer. I chose Pineapple Vodka and Sparkling Pear juice for my additions.
So, mixing was easy peasy. I poured the baking mix in my KitchenAid mixer, added 6 ounces of the Pineapple Vodka and 2 ounces of the Pear juice. I also added 4 ounces of vodka and 2 ounces of pear juice to a separate glass for me to sip while my cakes were baking. Mix the batter for 4 minutes on the low mix setting
To assemble your baking cups, start with the blue silicone cup and add one to each cup of a standard muffin tin, then fit in the mold, then put the paper cup inside the mold. Pour an equal amount of the bater into each baking cup.
Bake for 25 minutes and BAM! Cake! Here’s how they looked fresh from the oven.
You would think the paper molds would burn during the baking process but they did not. These bad boys baked up perfect. Once they cool, transfer them to the serving tray, pass around at your next party or just eat them all.
Decorate as you see fit. I used powdered sugar and blue and red sprinkles. After all, July 4th is just around the corner.
