This has my name alllll over it.

Cake Batter Martinis I howsweeteats.com

I know I just shared a big, fuzzy drink with you yesterday but before you go voting me off the island, hear me out.

I.couldn’t.help.it.

 

I teased you about it last week and couldn’t wait another day to share!

 

So here’s the deal. I strive my hardest to develop recipes to share with you guys that are simple, easy, and most importantly – filled with accessible ingredients that you most likely have on hand.

This obviously doesn’t fit that bill… but can you blame me?

 

I have no issue running to the grocery store and spending major bucks to create a recipe to tell you about… however, I just can’t justify dropping a benny at the liquor store for one outlandish drink that I may sip once a year. I had all of these ingredients on hand – except for creme do cacao, which I did purchase (it was cheap: $11.)

[And really, while we're in the circle of trust here I will tell you that I searched high and low (read: 5 different liquor stores) for this cake-flavored vodka. If you can find it... smuggle me a bottle. I'll zip my lips.]

Cake Batter Martinis I howsweeteats.com

I highly suggest buying the whipped cream vodka because, um… well hello? It’s whipped cream vodka. For reals. And the Godiva liqueur is just… white chocolate liqueur… does it need an explanation?

K. I’m gonna shut up now because I have you convinced to go buy 7 bottles of booze while you’re still in your pajamas.

 

I’ll be honest: I didn’t have high expectations for this drink. I love my heavy cream in everything from brownies to mac and cheese, but in my alcoholic drinks? Not a fan. Don’t even try to give me a white russian. But this totally changed my mind. I’m not sure I could drink more than one (okay… who are we kidding…), but they were super fun actually tasted like cake batter. Once in a lifetime drink if ya ask me!

Cake Batter Martinis I howsweeteats.com

Cake Batter Martinis

adapted from grin and bake it

makes a single serving, is easily multiplied

1 ounce amaretto

1 1/2 ounces Pinnacle whipped cream vodka

1 1/2 ounces creme de cacao

1/2 ounce Godiva white chocolate liqueur

1 ounce heavy cream

assorted sprinkles (nonpareils work best)

frosting

Using your finger, coat the rim of your glass with frosting – make sure not to miss any spots! Dump sprinkles on a plate and press glass rim into sprinkles, pressing to adhere. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for about 30 seconds. Strain into glass and drink!

[If you do not want to buy any of these crazy ingredients, try the original version I adapted above which only requires vanilla vodka. It is still delicious but wasn't quite "cupcake material" in my opinion. But you know I'm whack.]

Oh P.S. -> just don’t look in the mirror after you’re done. Your lips and tongue will be sprinkle-colored. Totally worth it. Now no more drink recipes! [until next weekend.]

    Ahh yes, cake vodka. You should look in Michigan for UV Cake Vodka. It’s made here in Minnesota so you might be more likely to find it in MI! It’s rather tasty!

    This looks absolutely amazing. I’m surprised you don’t have the Cake Vodka yet, we have it at our bar here in Lancaster, PA. But then again it might of been purchased in MD or DE. (Shhhh…) But it’s not as good as it looks. I was a little bummed out. Too strong on the vodka taste to be on its own and can’t find the right mixers yet. Good luck on your search for it though!!

      I’ve had the Pinnacle cake vodka, haven’t tried UV yet. I mixed it with club soda and it seemed perfect! If you haven’t tried it with that yet, I definitely would!!

      The best thing I’ve done with the UV Cake Vodka so far is make a Pineapple Upside down cake. It’s ridiculously easy: Two parts pineapple juice and one part Cake vodka. Voila! Delicious!!

      If you mix the cake vodka with irish creme (half and half of each) in a shot glass and mix it around it tastes like cake and makes for a delicious shot. e

    I came across your blog while looking at another blog. I just love the sweetnest that links creative people together. Anywho, you are the second person I heard talk about cake batter vodka, no wait it was bubble gum (I might have to give that a try). But here nor there, I thought that this was a great looking drink. I’m not a big drinker, but this might have to go down the hatch. Hope you don’t mind if I borrow this D’lish drink.
    Thanks…

    I tried to tell you on Facebook, but Facebook hates me now. Apparently.

    But!

    Idea:

    I will keep you in constant supply of cake vodka (as all our huge booze warehouses here are overflowing with Pinnacle everything), and you maybe possibly ship me… something. I’m not sure. I’ve been browsing your website all night and squealing over all the food, and I have no idea what I’m in the mood for anymore. Preferably something tasty. I might even throw in a case of whipped cream vodka, too – which, by the way, is AWESOME paired with orange juice. It’s a dreamsicle (dreamcicle? dreamscicle?) in a glass.

    Just a thought.

    Good ole’ Pinterest linked me here….
    I can’t wait to try this drink!
    FYI…. Don’t waste your money on Pinnacle vodka. The vodka taste comes through way too harsh. I couldn’t even taste the cake batter. I tried mixing it with anything I could get my hands on, (chocolate milk, cream, coconut water…) but the vodka cut right though. Now, on the other hand, Three Olives has a cake batter vodka that will knock your socks off! They also have a bubblegum flavor that makes very fun Girls Night Ins if you mix it with club soda. :-)
    Unless you’ve tried Pinnacle and like it….. Then disregard my Pinnacle bashing. Lol.
    Thanks for the recipe!

    UV Cake vodka and Pinnacle Cake vodka are amazing, sweet vodkas that I think anybody should try. I was a little skeptical the first time I tried it, I mean it sounds kind of weird, but I was hooked as soon as I tried it. You can mix it with almost anything, I suggest trying the Starbucks iced coffees you can buy almost anywhere. It will blow your mind, I assure you. I’m cracking open a bottle of Pinnacle Cake tonight. I’m in love. <3

    Oh my I just got a bottle of Three Olives Birthday Cake Vodka and it is amazing! I actually had it with pineapple juice and a smidge of amarreto, to die for! Actually a few weekends ago we didn’t have pineapple juice so just had it on the rocks, felt like I was so old doing this, but OMG it was heavenly! the flavor was amazing and it wasn’t so strong that it burned your throat! Awesomeness!!! I will be trying this recipe this weekend! :)

      When I initially made these for the post, they had whipped cream vodka in them because I could not find cake vodka yet. However, I’ve since been able to find all brands of cake vodka and make them with that. The 3 Olives brand is my favorite. I can’t get alcohol at Sam’s because I live in Pennsylvania – we can only get it in state stores.

    I am very excited to try this recipe! I do happen to have a bottle of “UV”‘s “Cake” flavored vodka. It alone is amazing enough to drink straight from the bottle. However, Pinnacle also has a cake vodka as well. Pinnacles is a bit stronger and I don’t find it as flavorful as UV brand.

    Hope yall can find some. Our shelves were blown out withint like 2 days of getting the order and took almost 2 months for them to get the next set of shipments in.
