I have volunteered to make the birthday cake for a friend's landmark b-day. He is enamored of the bourbon-bacon-brownies in the sweets shop below our office so I have offered to do a cake version. I typically use the recipes below for the chocolate cakes the kids continue to request birthday after birthday. The bacon part is not hard, cook it, crumble it and add it to the layers but how much bourbon can I add? I'd like to keep the cake in tact but still be able to taste the bourbon.
