Cake Vodka Martini

I hope you all had a very happy Easter! We definitely did, especially since we changed things up this year and instead of our traditional Easter dinner, we did it up Polish-style. We had fresh kielbasa and sauerkraut, my mother-in-law and I made pierogi using her family’s recipe, and my babcia, my mom, and my sister made so many cabbage rolls that we barely put a dent in them. Everything was delicious, and of course one of the best parts about having all that food is that our freezer is full of the leftovers!

Hosting for nine people was a lot of work though…and sadly I feel like I spent more time in the kitchen than anywhere else. At the end of the day Sunday, I had a nice big glass of wine to relax. Having recently fallen in love with Three Olives’ cake vodka though (it really does taste like a slice of white cake!), next time I will definitely make one of these. I’ve even used Kahlua in place of the chocolate liquer since I love my coffee, and it was pretty darn good. Hope you enjoy it, too!

For the rim:

For the drink:

Spread the chocolate or icing on to a small plate, and flip your glass upside-down into the icing to coat the rim. Then, quickly dip the glass into another small plate filled with sprinkles to coat the rim. Add the rest of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into the glass. Makes one serving.

  1. This is a work of pure genius! I love the addition of kahlua, and those sprinkles are an excellent touch, my friend!

  7. Yeah, hosting can be all-consuming . . . I’m still trying to find ways to do it like the “pros” out there and be able to relax and mingle while still providing a feast. I hear it’s all about practice, practice, practice.

  8. Try Pinnacle Cake Batter vodka too if you can’t find the Three Olive brand. 🙂 Sooooo yummy!

  11. Beautiful cocktail! Quick question, where do you find the cake vodka? I’ve been having trouble finding all these new flavored vodkas, I’m still looking for the roasted marshmallow one.

  12. I’ve had a version of a cake batter martini before, and it was sooooo good. Quite strong however, as I seem to remember getting buzzed off one 🙂

    Your Easter dinner sounds great, and you now have me craving pierogies!

  13. Love the sprinkle rim! I’ve been wanting to try that cake vodka.

  14. Oh my gosh! I bought the smirnoff cupcake vodka over the summer and kept trying to figure out a mixed drink to make with it, but I couldn’t think of anything. This looks FABULOUS! And I absolutely love the sprinkles around the edge.

  15. A. I have been unable to find this vodka! Now I will be on a MAD search!

    B. Amaretto, too? Be still my heart.

    C. Sprinkles. I think I love you.

  20. I love cake martinis! I’ve been using the Pinnacle cake vodka from the local liquor store, but I’ve never seen one with amaretto in it too. Sounds delicious!
