It is the year of the 30’s for most of my friends and I. For my girlfriends birthday back in February I made these really fun Birthday cake shots! They are colorful, easy and taste like cake! You can see the rest of the details of her birthday in my post here.

I made them the day before and they stored and transported great in a large mason jar. Feel free to alter the recipe to your liking but this is what I would suggest.

Birthday Cake Shots

  • Cake Vodka
  • Bailey’s
  • Shot sized cups (you may use glass or plastic)
  • Pink Icing
  • Nonpareils
  • Pink food dye

I used (2) 16oz mason jars with lids and poured in 8oz of cake vodka and 8oz of Bailey’s. I then dropped in pink food dye until I got the color consistency I wanted. You can also use red or any other color you would like. Shake up the liquid to mix the alcohol and food dye. Be careful while shaking since the jar is glass. I accidentally broke mine because my hands were wet! OOPS!!! It was a mess!

I kept the liquor mixture in the fridge overnight and until it was ready to be poured and served. I wanted it to stay chilled. When I was setting up for the party I displayed the cups on a clear acrylic cake stand on the dessert table.

To rim the cups dip them in pink or vanilla icing then dip them in a small bowl of nonpareils.

Right before we sang Happy Birthday, I poured the liquor into the shot cups using a liquid measuring cup. It was the perfect dessert for those who opted out of eating the rice krispie cake! I can’t wait to make them again!
