1 box cake mix
Ingredients for cake mix except water or milk
Booze to replace water or milk
Sweet Likker (recipe follows)
Mix up the cake mix just like the box says but use your favorite booze instead of whatever water or milk or other liquid it wants. Bake as usual.
thereís a teensy-slight chance your oven might ignite from the fumes when you open the oven door. The firemen said it had something to do with feeding in fresh oxygen or something like that, but I couldnít hear too good because of the ringing in my ears from the blast.
Itís okay, though. Eyebrows grow back just fine over time. And really, it only happened two Ė maybe three Ė times.
When the cake is done, poke holes in it. The back end of a spoon works good. Douse it with as much sweet likker as it can soak up.
1 jug backyard booze
You could do this with the storebought stuff, but itís just not as good. Honestly, I donít know whatís wrong with people that they canít make the important things from scratch any more. Backyard booze is completely legal as long as youíre not making too much of it at a time, so you can just make it in small quantities on a more regular basis.
Anyway, to make the sweet likker, start with a full jug, then pour off a hefty mug full. Add back in as much sugar as will fit, with enough room in the jug to shake and slosh it around. Cap it off and shake until all the sugar is dissolved.
Sweet likker is used for the Make-Up Cake, but itís the also a great drink for the ladies. Men donít seem to like it as much, but we go through just about a full jug for ladies mid-morning tea. A bit of sweet likker in a steaming mug of tea warms the bones on a cold day, and a mug of sweet likker with a shot of hot tea makes the afternoon much more interesting.
