Enjoy these grown-up treats with a side of coffee! These Mudslide Cupcakes consist of a chocolate Kahlua cupcake, topped with a Bailey's Irish Cream and Chocolate Kahlua buttercream swirl and bittersweet chocolate curls. These are seriously the moistest (and quite possibly, the booziest) cupcakes I have ever made!

Limoncello Cream Cheese Tartlets

Limoncello Cream Cheese Tartlets

How about a little lemony sunshine on a cold winter day? 

"Tartlets that actually live up to their name. These tartlets are tart enough for even the most devoted-lemon lover thanks to a sassy infusion of Limoncello liqueur."

Nigella's Chocolate Fruitcake

Nigella's Chocolate Fruitcake

I love homemade fruitcakes made with exquisite ingredients, fruitcakes that are packed with lovingly prepared booze-soaked fruit and nuts, like this one that's covered with a rich chocolate ganache.

"Nigella Lawson nailed it with this recipe and this is definitely a keeper."

Apparently, this cake was phenomenally delicious. Once it was ready, our lovely baker "... downed a quarter of it with a lovely glass of fresh orange juice." Now THAT is a good fruit cake. :)

Banana Bourbon Cinnamon Rolls

Banana Bourbon Cinnamon Rolls

Is there a better way to wake up than to the smell of homemade cinnamon rolls? These are "made with a simple sweet dough and filled with bourbon-cooked bananas mashed with some cinnamon." They're a shot of WAKE UP, perfect for a late weekend morning.
