For my older sons and his roommate and bestfriends birthday....
This is a Blue Hawaiian - a coconut rum cake with a Blue Hawaiian cocktail mixed into the buttercream (Blue curacao, rum, pineapple juice and coconut cream)
This is a spicy Aztec- from Warren Brown's Cake Love, a almond flavored cupcake with cornmeal, almond powder, cocoa nibs and honey. Topped with a dark chocolate ganache and chopped homemade spicy almond brittle.
And the creme de la creme - a mix of Surly Coffee Bender beer and Jameson Irish whiskey with cinnamon and cayenne in a chocolate cake, topped with a Jameson and maple syrup frosting and spicy candied bacon.
