Chocolate Cake Inspires New Liqueur
Who doesn't love a piece of cake? One enterprising distiller has decided to turn cake into a new liquor concept. Michigan's Chris Nordwall is part of the team behind the Piece of Cake Liqueur Co. which creates a Chocolate Cake Liqueur. The liqueur won a silver award in the tasting competition at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America's 67th annual Convention and Exposition in Las Vegas in April.
The liqueur has hazelnut and cocoa notes and can be paired with cream or milk, or with a variety of other spirits like peppermint schnapps to create tempting flavor combinations. If the company's Facebook page is any indication, they've got a hit on their hands, people seem to love the stuff. The company's products are produced in a Michigan-based distillery and have made their way to a few other states. A rollout of other dessert-inspired flavors like strawberry shortcake and pineapple upside down cake is planned.
