my birthday has come and gone but i came across this recipe for a birthday cake cocktail, i had to try it. i'm not one for super sweet vodkas that try to mask the alcohol flavor but i gave in to curiosity. what could cake vodka actually taste like? well it tastes exactly like you'd think, a little cakey flavor in the beginning and more of a traditional vodka taste at the end.
wow, that's some great descriptive words right there, i wonder why i'm not a paid food writer. overall, not to sickly sweet. heck, even the boyf drank it. but then again he'll drink anything if i put a glass in his hand. only thing i don't recommend are the sprinkles i used. they didn't want to stick to the glass too well but they stain your lips. i would've preferred the crystally kind but when you're at safeway you tend to have limited options. i don't know how many complaints i've given them about not carrying sugar cubes, but they'll never listen. i know, white people problems.
i haven't come across any other decent cake vodka recipes so if you know of some, i'd love to hear them!
