I am in NO means a cook, but I really wanted to make my favorite holiday a good one! I found this recipe and gave it a whirl. I have to say, it was very difficult for someone like me but I did accomplish it!
My difficulties were when I made the whiskey syrup, I made it quicker than I was thinking it would take me, so it hardened up before I could pour it into the cake, so I had to do it again. Next, was the caramel sauce! That was the worst part! If it was necessary to have it, I would get rid of it! It was soooo hard! And sticky. When I finally got it as caramelized as I could, which I had to do all of the additions everyone said in the previous comments, the parts that dripped over the cake, but landed on my cake dish would not come off! I had to scrap it off with a knife. I was so scared at that point. Next came the frosting. It didn't thicken up, which judging by 2 of the pictures, there's didn't either, I'm guessing because of the baileys. But it tasted great!
Then came serving time. I was terrified, still about the caramel sauce, and that it was going to ruin the whole cake, make it hard to eat and sticky. But it was AMAZING! It was so soft and delicious! You could definitely taste the alcohol, no complaints here! I sent this recipe to my mother in law and sister in law who are both great cooks and waiting to see if they have the same difficulties I did.
Great recipe. Would most likely do it again next year!
