“Caketails” Catching On Among Trendy U.K. Bakeries And Consumers

August 1, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A number of trendy bakeries in the U.K. are flavoring their cakes and cupcakes with “18-certificate” – i.e., adults only – beverages, such as gin, champagne, rum, and amaretto, creating what have become known as “caketails”. Also available are so-called “mocktails” that feature exotic flavors such as strawberry daiquiri. A bakery in London serves up cupcakes with names like the Chocolate Guinness and the Blue Hawaiian Tipple, laced with Blue Curacao. “As we like to say,” the owner quips, “with a caketail you can have your drink and eat it, too.”
