I sure you have all been sitting on the edge of your seats just waiting to see what happened during Cassi’s Big Birthday Adventure in Croatia and Venice, and what it has to do with a Blue Kamikaze Cocktail Cake. I will let the photos that were posted on facebook explain it, or at least show what happened…..although I still need some clarification on what the heck actually happened on that trip! But we will start with the only boat photo…..

Okay, it’s not an actual photo of the boat ride, I guess there weren’t any taken??? Who knows…..

They got Cassi a cake for her birthday and sang Happy Birthday!!! They must not have known what happens if you sing to her in public…..she starts to cry!

Oh, notice her blue tongue! I have photos to explain that one…..

and a nice framed one as well…..

and she definitely has some explaining to do with this one…..

She loved Croatia, thought it was beautiful, but would like to go back again during the summer when it is warmer…..

For a girl raised in Iowa to complain about how cold it was, it must have been really cold!

It looks beautiful in the photos…..

It looks like a birthday party that she will never forget! I am really glad to see that she had such an amazing time with all of her new friends…..

I am even more happy that she made it back to Belgium, in one piece 🙂

As you have probably guessed by the title, this cake is inspired by the Blue Kamikaze Shots they were drinking the night of her party. Now we can all feel like we were there with her, or not!

How to make a Blue Kamikaze Cocktail Cake:

For the Cake:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray (for baking). Set aside.

Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Add liquid ingredients, and beat together with a mixer.

Add blue gel food coloring. I do not have an exact amount, I scoop some out of the jar with a toothpick and swirl the toothpick in the batter to remove. If the color is not correct, add more.

Beat for an additional 1 – 2 minutes until smooth and well blended.

Pour into prepared pan and and tap on the floor or counter to remove air bubbles. Bake for 55 – 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

Add gel coloring and mix until you achieve your desired color.

Place cooking rack over a large dinner plate. Using a large spoon, pour the glaze over the top of the cake.

The glaze with run over the cake and collect on the plate. Move cake and rack to a second clean plate. Continue pouring the glaze over the cake, switching back and forth between plates, until all of the glaze is now on the cake.

Allow to cool completely, for at least 12 hours before serving. Do not ever eat these cakes while still warm, the alcohol is too strong and will not have a pleasant taste!

I am not exactly sure why the glaze separated, notice the white crackling in the glaze? Oh well, it still tastes amazing.
