I thought the perfect birthday cake for George would be a White Russian cake. There is always Kahula at my parents house and ever since I can remember my step dad, George, has made White Russians. YUMMY ones!
Bake your favorite white or yellow cake. I chose white since the title says it all "WHITE Russian." Instead of using vanilla, you can use kahula or vodka.
I love homemade butter cream frosting. You can add whatever flavor to it and it will taste delicious.
I added both vodka and Kahlua!
I also brushed the cakes with both vodka and kahula before putting on the layers.
You can add as much alcohol as you like. It keeps the cake moist and adds a little more YUM.
I know what you are thinking: "you gave alcohol to your kids?" No, they got their own cakes. Any alcohol you put into the batter burns off in the oven. When I cut the tops of the layers off of the cakes to make them level, I used biscuit cutters to make small layer cakes for the kids. I also made frosting WITHOUT alcohol to frost them. So no worries people.
I even frosted theirs cute and put them on little appetizer plates. Cute, huh?
They enjoyed them, and we enjoyed the White Russian Cake. YUM!
