Hot Dog Cakes With Boozed-Up Frosting: Can a Birthday Dessert Get Better Than This?
Talk about friends with (food) benefits.
Ethan Adeland of the food blog, Tastes Better With Friends, decided to celebrate his friend's birthday by making her a sweet treat trio of the more adult kind: cakes shaped like hot dogs and covered in three flavors of boozy frosting.
Adeland's three kinds of birthday hot dogs, the White Whiskey Cream Cheese Dog, Cinnamon Goldschläger Dog, and Ice Cider Cream Liqueur Nightcap Dog, all start with an adapted pound cake recipe, then use food coloring and (of course) liquor for the frosting and "condiments."
