Welcome.  This is my new blog chronicling my project into making alcoholic cakes and hopefully along the way learning more about alcohol, cake, baking and how they all combine together!

I work in marketing for two rather awesome venues – one pub, one cocktail bar – and my new year’s resolution was to try and learn more about the wonderful world of alcohol and its complexities.  So I’m reading, asking questions and attending training, where possible.  But me being me, I need a way to put the theory into practice, and rather than do something sensible like learn the art of cocktail making, I figured I’d combine this burgeoning knowledge with cake. Henceforth Half-Cut Cakes was born!
