December. Full of decorating, holiday parties, days off from work, and a nip in the air. What better way to give you a toasty warm feeling that with a boozy bundt. This month our #BundtaMonth group enjoyed am alcohol infused theme. My cake this month is an homage to my old days of “out every weekend with my girlfriend’s” days. We used to love a shot of butterscotch schnapps with a layer of Bailey’s floating on the top. The shot tastes like a butterscotch candy. I was excited to recreate the flavor profile in my
Bailey’s and Buttershots Bundt Cake.
Our #BundtaMonth bakers know not everyone drinks alcohol. We made sure to include non-alcoholic bundts in our list this month as well! I loved how creative the participants were with all of their recipes! Don’t forget you can always get a little creative and use flavored extracts as opposed to alcohol if you prefer.

I topped my cake with a simple glaze of melted butter, powdered sugar, and a little creme brulee flavored creamer. I just played with the three ingredients until I reached the consistency that I wanted for drizzling over the cake. You could certainly sub in the Baileys instead of the creamer to punch up the Baileys flavor.
There are some amazing cakes this month that I can’t wait to try baking. I have a feeling a few party hostesses will be receiving a bundt instead of a bottle of wine this year.Araby Spice-Limoncello Bundt Cake with Limoncello Glaze by Lora from Cake Duchess Bailey’s and Buttershots Bundt Cake by Karen from In The Kitchen With KP Banana Pineapple Bundt Cake with Coconut Rum Glaze by Carrie from Poet In The Pantry Chocolate Bourbon Mini Bundt by Holly from A Baker’s House Chocolate Port Bundt Cake by Paula from Vintage Kitchen Eggnog Rum Pound Cake by Dorothy from Shockingly Delicious Madeira Pound Bundt Cake by Renee from Magnolia Days Mint Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake with Creme de Menthe by Laura from The Spiced Life Shirley Temple Bundt Cake by Kim Beaulieu from Cravings Of A Lunatic Spiked Eggnog Bundt Cake with Bourbon Glaze by Kate from Food Babbles Sweet Potato Bourbon Bundt by Jennie from The Messy Baker Blog Long Island Iced TeaCake by Deb from Knitstamatic Rum and Raisin Butter Bundt with Rum Honey Glaze by Stacy from Food Lust People Love Tiramisu Bundt Cake with Kahlúa Mascarpone Glaze by Anuradha from Baker Street Vanilla and Bourbon Cake by Kate from Diet Hood Vanilla Mini Bundt Cakes with Kahlúla by Alice from Hip Foodie Mom
