I picked up the plastic shot glasses at The Dollar Tree while I was in Arizona. I made a non alcoholic version (for those that were preggers) using the frozen layer I saved from my Peggy Porschen cake and a tube of white decorating icing that Dr. Oetker sent me a few weeks back.The cake recipe makes two 8 inch cake rounds. I only had 8 guests so I made about 20 shots which only used half of one cake. I froze the rest to use for cake pops at a later date so it doesn’t go to waste. The recipe could easily be halved.
Enjoy! I wonder how many it takes to get buzzed?
Make sure to check out the Cupcake Cocktail I served and check back later this week for the rest of the goodies I made for the party.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, separated
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbs liquor of your choice (I used vanilla vodka)
3 cups plain flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp saltJell-o Layer
2 boxes Jell-o
2 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup liquor
Gummy bears or worms
Buttercream, homemade or store bought (I used a tube of read and white wilton swirl for the spiked shooters)
- Make the cake. Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease two 8 inch cake rounds. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks and slowly pour in the milk. Stir in the vanilla and liquor.
- Fold in the flour, salt and baking powder. In a small separate bowl whip the egg whites until stiff. Fold the whites into the batter.
- Fill each round and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Set aside to cool completely.
- Make the jell-o. Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in the gelatine until dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature. Stir in the alcohol and then pour into a dish and refrigerate until completely set.
- To assemble use a shot glass as a cookie cutter to cut circles out of the cake. Split each cut out in half if thick. Do the same with the jell-o. Fill each glass with a layer of cake, then a layer of jello-o and another layer of cake. Top each glass with a swirl of buttercream and a piece of candy.
