Cupcakes? Yum. Cocktails? Fun. If putting them together sounds like the best-tasting double act since gin and tonic, then Wilton's Shot Tops Cupcake Kit is perfect for you.
About Cocktail Baking
Taking inspiration from cocktail menus, this trend involves adding alcohol after baking, preserving the full strength of your favourite drink and letting you mix and match flavours. Instead of an umbrella, add a shot of rum to coconut and pineapple cupcakes for a taste of the tropical with a batch of Piña Colada bakes; mix up a more solid take on a margarita by serving refreshing lime-flavoured bakes with a topper filled with tequila; or, go for a really decadent after-dinner treat with coffee cupcakes topped with a dose of Irish cream liqueur.
And these booze-infused bakes couldn't be easier to make, especially for anyone who remembers school chemistry lessons. Just insert the pipette into your chosen tipple, squeeze and release to fill, then serve as a topper with your cupcake. Your guests simply need to squeeze the topper again to infuse their cupcake with a boozy flavour boost.
This kit from Wilton contains everything you need to get started making your own grown-up, alcohol-infused cupcakes: 12 bottle-shaped Shot Top pipettes and a booklet containing top tips, full recipes using liqueurs, spirits and tequila and suggestions for alcohol-free alternatives.
