I have a new obsession with this little thing I came up with called ‘Bottoms-Upcakes’ ..  stick with me here! 🙂

They’re simply “cupcake-ish” style treats with an unapologetic bottle of booze all turned upside down inside of them, ..dripping time-released boozy-goodness deep inside that oh-so-thirsty cake …lol!

And the possibilities are endless, so stay tuned for many more “Up-Cake” versions of this one.

This method not only creates a one of a kind drunken dessert delight, it also has a WOW factor that will keep everyone slurring talking long after the last sip bite is gone.

The boozy mini serves as a ‘good-times’ IV..if you will, for that cake which clearly benefits from the boozy boost.

Not to mention that the flavors are a match made in heaven and your party/get together/movie marathon /..err, night alone at home/.. will never be the same.  🙂

~Put those kiddos to bed, and Bottoms-UP..cakes!

What you’ll need:


Mini bottles of dark OR light Rum ..one per each Upcake.

Chocolate Cake

Caramel Frosting

Cocoa Powder/Powdered Sugar for dusting..optional

Oven-safe glasses or mugs for baking


Mix up the cake batter according to the box instructions, BUT~ replace the liquid with COKE!

*NOTE*  If you’re using the same boxed cake mix as I did, simply follow the directions for both of the chocolate components and add accordingly to each cup.  Otherwise, simply do whatever your box says to do.

Fill up your “cups” 3/4 full with the batter.

Bake them at 350 for approx. 15-20 minutes, or until they’re fully cooked through and firm…

Let them cool… and lay on that caramel frosting nice and generous-like…

When you’re ready to serve, simply open a mini Rum, and stick that baby into the “Bottoms-Upcake”..

Grab a spoon for all that luscious-boozy goodness…

Don’t forget to share…

NOW~ you can DIG IN!  ~Enjoy! 🙂
