Top 10 Alcohol Inspired Cakes & Cupcakes

Wine Inspired

Red Wine And Chocolate Alcohol Inspired Cake

Red Wine and Chocolate Cake! Yes, please!! This recipe is from Life, Love and Sugar. If you are feeling in the sharing the love mood it would be perfect for some girly nights in. You can find some of the products you need for the cake here; Candy Buttons, Plain Piping Nozzle, Vanilla Flavouring.

Prosecco and Raspberry Cupcakes

Anyone for Raspberry and Prosecco Cupcakes? These would work beautifully for a picnic or an afternoon tea. The recipe is over here at Sartorial Scot. Use the Pink Cupcakes Cases for that added cuteness to these cupcakes.

 Beer Inspired

Guinness and Chocolate Cake

For those that are a fan of Guinness, you will love this Chocolate Cake. Although, the fact it is sweet and salty may sway me to try a slice. The recipe can be found here at Goodie Godmother. You could use your own buttercream recipe and add a little of the Beau Salted Caramel Flavouring to it for that extra hit of caramel.

 Cocktail Inspired

Pina Colada Cake

My second favourite drink has to be Pina Colada, so tropical and just seeing that morish cocktail just reminds me of being on holiday! Here is a recipe for you to create your own Pina Colada Cake by Liv For Cake.  You could colour the sponge with a little bit of yellow colouring to give it that really summery feel.

Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes

These Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes look summery, vibrant, as well as being delicious, you can find a recipe here on The Cake Blog. They would look perfect in the Pink Baking Cups with a Pink and White Straw poking out.

 Liqueur Inspired

Baileys Buttercream CupcakesMy all-time favourite drink is Baileys, consequently, a Baileys Buttercream would be my idea of absolute bliss. This recipe is from Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen and is literally 3 ingredients! I think these cupcakes would look great in the Brown Cupcake Cases.

Grand Marnier CupcakesThese Grand Marnier Cupcakes are the perfect treat for a dinner party. Find the recipe here from Three Many Cooks.  This recipe requires a tiny amount of orange food colouring which can be found here.

 Spirit Inspired

Gin and Tonic CupcakesHow about these Gin & Tonic Cupcakes? The recipe from Sharkett Sisters can be found here. These would look adorable in the Aqua Baking Cases, why not colour the buttercream using the Sugarflair Lime Green Colouring?

Jack Daniels and Cola CupcakesChocolate Cola Cupcakes with Jack Daniels Ganache and a creamy whiskey buttercream frosting….excuse the drool!! If you are wanting to try making them yourself you can find the recipe here on Stress Baking. If you wanted to use your usual chocolate sponge recipe that you have, you could always add a little of the Beau Products Cola Flavouring to your mix.

Pimms CupcakesIt’s Pimms O’Clock time, well Pimms O’Cupcake Time. This amazingly delicious looking Pimms Cupcake recipe can be found here. You can find the Red Polka Dot Cases here and we even have the matching cupcake box to go with it.
