Baking With Spirit: The Raspberry Liqueur Round Up

This month's challenge was to bake with raspberry liqueur and, as always, I've had some very tasty looking entries. My plan was that if we used something summery it would entice the weather to warm up a little, and I think we've been successful! Let's take a look at what these talented bloggers have made, shall we?

Caroline at Caroline Makes... made this intriguing Chocolate Mousse With Chambord Black Raspberry  Liqueur With Bols Foam. I've never heard of Bols foam before but it looks pretty exciting, and chocolate mousse flavoured with raspberry liqueur must taste superb.

Though it was originally intended to be a pavlova, Craig's Accidental Raspberry Eton Mess over at The Usual Saucepans had me drooling. He made the Eton Mess with a home-made raspberry liqueur of sorts, using gin to make a sauce. Sounds good to me!

Next, I made these Honey Cupcakes with Raspberry Liqueur Icing. Unfortunately the icing split a little bit from the quantity of liquid added, but they still tasted pretty good.

Finally, the lovely Ellen at Bake It With Booze made these pretty Raspberry Amaretto Mini Cheesecakes. She made her own raspberry puree using the liqueur and swirled it into the cheesecake. I think I would have trouble sticking to just one of these!

A big thank you to all of you who took part! Check back tomorrow to find out the challenge for May.
