Alcohol in cakes??
I have a wedding cake due in a couple of weeks~ the couple wants one of the tiers to be a margarita cake with strawberry margarita filling (which they’ve asked me to create a recipe using a jar of their homemade strawberry margarita jam, their family favorite), and other tier with chocolate cherry amaretto filling. I know the alcohol will cook out of the cakes, but since the fillings aren’t cooked, it won’t! So therefor I’m concerned with the fact that minors will be eating this cake. I’d probably serve it to my own kids, not like there will be enough alcohol to get them drunk off of one slice… but I’m worried for the legal aspects of it, especially since their reception is being held in a rented banquet hall. Am I over-thinking or being too paranoid??
Thank you in advance for your responses!
