Have Your Cake and Drink It- The Best Gin Cake's ever

Many of us are attempting social distancing from the fridge and we have to admit being alone with essential items often leads to cake by day and Gin by night.

How about we combine both essentials and keep you busy with baking whilst incorporating your favourite liquid ingredient.

We are sure you will be more than impressed with these Boozy bakes.


This beautiful bake includes 125ml Gin and a Gin and Tonic flavour frosting which you can easily replicate at home.

We love the inclusion of lime and the gorgeous layers of green goodness.

We recommend a lovely Craft Gin from the Gindex collection to add in those Aussie botanicals.

Grab a pack of mixed tonics from our store to make the Gin and Tonic Jelly.

A beautiful creamy cake fit for afternoon tea with G&T or even a skinny flat white to make up for the calories. The Gin here is infused in the strawberry jam and Elderflower liqueur with the cream. 

Elderflower liqueur makes a perfect Gin cocktail, order yourself a Gin treat at The Gindex or sign up for an Australian Craft Gin Subscription

If people really do insist on sharing, then these Gin and Tonic Cupcakes are perfect but may not last too long!

Super simple to make– even for novice, tired or gin infused bakers. The only trick is using room temperature ingredients.

The frosting – mascarpone, icing sugar and cream – is also infused with the G&T syrup and piped over the cupcakes. A slice of lime and small and decorative straws make them look too good to eat, but we know you will! 

The Threefold Aromatic Gin on Gindex would be a perfect pairing!

Its pink, its light and its ombre.

Reminiscent of a childhood angel cake but filled with Gin and a gorgeous pink lemonade....ooo yes please!

We recommend the beautiful BABY Pink Gin in this recipe, which is available on Gindex and will give the cake a fabulous Rose and Raspberry flavour.

Just a lovely simple sponge with Gin added to both the Icing and Drizzle, the only hard bit is deciding which Aussie Craft Gin to use.

With a healthy dose of lime slices plonked on top, the icing is best served messy so you really cant go wrong here and who cares about sticky icy gin fingers?

For that lovely yellow sponge grab some free range eggs and for the best flavour use a Citrus Gin or a Gincello from our Gindex! Happy Baking

Now this is an gindulgence, a soft, tender and moist Chocolate Gin Cake. Its packed to the rafters with chocolate and coffee flavours that are enhanced by the gin.

If you are indeed both a chocoholic and a gin lover you will love this piece of sticky chocolate heaven.

We think the Davidson Plum Gin would go perfect in this cake.

We hope you enjoy a little home baking, please share your masterpieces with us and any new Gindulgent recipes you create.
