One tool that helps immensely in the creation of Booze Cakes is the food syringe. You may have seen these at your local grocery store. These large syringes are marketed for injecting marinades into meat, but I’ve found mine to be the best dang thing on the market for getting as much booze as possible into a cake.
How does it differ from an ordinary syringe? This food-safe device has a large needle that has not one, but two large holes near the tip of the needle.
Let’s just talk a little bit about food safety. I wouldn’t recommend using anything other than a food-safe syringe for food. Food syringes are designed for use with food and also come apart easily for cleaning. Also, you do not want to use the same food syringe on your Booze Cake that you’ve previously used on raw meat. Invest in a food syringe specifically for Booze Cake and give it a nice name (I like to call mine “The Enabler”). Love your food syringe and it will love you back.
