Now you can pretend you don’t do this, but we wont believe you. Everyone, at some point in their lives, has licked the cake batter of the spoon/spatula/mixer attachment and savored that sweet primordial concoction of raw ingredients mixed together. (Yes, yes, uncooked eggs may cause salmonella, blah blah). I freely admit, I still do this anytime I am making a dessert batter.
By the recent surge in availability and popularity of cake batter flavored treats, I think I am not alone in my spoon lickin’ ways. Cake Batter Ice Cream, Birthday Cake flavor Milkshakes, and Cake Flavored Vodka, are just a few options now available to satisfy your sweet-tooth. When I happened across these Cake Batter Martinis by How Sweet It Is, not only was my eye delighted by the colorful sprinkles, but my mouth watered a little bit at the thought of drinking this sweet solution.
Cake Batter Martinis
makes a single serving, is easily multiplied
1 ounce amaretto
1 1/2 ounces Pinnacle whipped cream vodka
1 1/2 ounces creme de cacao
1/2 ounce Godiva white chocolate liqueur
1 ounce heavy cream
assorted sprinkles (nonpareils work best)
Using your finger, coat the rim of your glass with frosting – make sure not to miss any spots! Dump sprinkles on a plate and press glass rim into sprinkles, pressing to adhere. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for about 30 seconds. Strain into glass and drink!
There is already a trip to the liquor store in the near future in my plans (got to stock up for Dragon*con next weekend), and after seeing this, I think I’ll be adding a few more things to my list!
