My friend is having a birthday this weekend and I'm wanting to make a dessert. I've made a few desserts for him and his friends in the past, all of which have contained alcohol. They're a bunch of drinkers so they think it's absolutely amazing to have a drink themed dessert, lol. The best part is that I havent had to bake any of the alcohol off, it gets added after baking, woohoo!!! So far I've made Margarita Cupcakes, Drunken Fruit Salad, and an AMAZING chocolate triffle with Kahlua soaked cake. I've been searching online for other recipes, but seem to be coming up empty handed. I figured I'd come here to the recipe experts and ask for some ideas Smiley

I always add plenty of booze to my Christmas cakes, especially brandy or cherry brandy.  You could make a fruit cake loaf, or lots of mini fruitcakes, then feed them everyday until the weekend?  They won't be overly alcoholic, but they will be delicious.

You can also make icing by mixing icing sugar (I think it's confectioner's sugar in the US?) with vodka or liquor rather than water.  I've not tried it myself, but it sounds good.

That does sound good Smiley Thanks for the suggestion Smiley I was just told that I have free reign on the dessert, the birthday boy isn't craving anything inparticular. Seeing how I have been following a low carb diet for the last two months, I figured I might as well kill two birds with one stone. I've been craving banana pudding for MONTHS so I'm thinking of making a banana pudding trifle. There's got to be a way to include some 99 Bananas or Banana Rum in that Smiley

You might already know about this one, but I thought I should mention it anyway...

I've seen the celebrity chef Jamie Oliver (I don't know if you know him, but he's kind of a big deal here in Britain) do a Vodka Water Melon on TV. I know it's not a proper baked dessert, but if your friends are impressed with booze related things then this is quite cool because they'll think it's just watermelon, but instead of containing mostly water it contains mostly codka!

I just googled "vodka melon", and I got the 'recipe':

1 large ripe watermelon
1 bottle of vodka

What to do: cut a hole in the top of the melon, wide & deep enough to wedge in a funnel tightly. Pour some vodka into the melon through the funnel: leave to sit for a day, then top up. Do this for a few days, keeping the melon chilled all the while until it is saturated with drink.

Slice, serve and grin.

There's also handy tips on Rachael's Fresh Approah Cooking:

Someone on another website said he served it in a dessert bowl rather than in slices so that none of the liquid got wasted... You also need about a week to get a litre of vodka into a large melon, so you might have problems getting this done by the weekend, but I'm sure this can wait for a nice sunny summer's day, when they least expect it! Just remember to keep the melon in a cool place, so that it doesn't go bad.

Well, my banana trifle idea is no more Sad I was looking forward to that one, lol. I got a phone call last night and the special request is chocolate. So, I think I'm going to make the "Chocolate Covered Strawberry" cake I made for Easter. It was AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL, but I forgot to take a photo... I'll be sure to take pics this time. The only thing I'm thinking of adding is maybe soaking the cake with a bit of Tequila Rose. I'll post the recipe below, please let me know if you the TR will be a good addition or maybe just too much, lol. Thanks again!!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake

1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix
1 Can Strawberry Pie Filling
1 Tub of Cool Whip
1 Package Fresh Strawberries

Use 2 7in pans to bake the cake. Let them cool. While they are cooling, squeeze all the pie filling through a fine strainer. Seperate the liqued and the strawberry mash. Place one cake on a serving plate, then top with the Strawberry mash. Put the other cake on top. Mix the liqued from the pie filling into the Cool Whip, use this mixture to "frost" the cake. *I did a light coat of regular Cool Whip then froze it to act as a crumb coat, it worked great* Cut up strawberries and decorate the cake however you see fit.

I used the resources mentioned in this post to make a pretty damn good irish whiskey coffee cake. We got drunk off the cake alone.

Also popular (and delicious) are Bourbon balls.
