A cocktail for when your friends are nearby and your sobriety is not. Perfect for the holiday season.
Line up many champagne flutes and the materials to make a cake from scratch.
Pour 1 oz Chambord into the flutes, top with whatever can be loosely called champagne, and pass out amongst your friends.
Proceed to mix cake ingredients into a batter. Find an oven (you preheated this to 350, right?) and bake the cake as per the instructions found on the box that you obviously did not make from scratch.
Eat most of the frosting you’ve either made or bought. Pour another round of Cham-Chams. Pour many more rounds. Forget about the cake. Mm, Chambord.
Remember the cake. Remove pan from the oven and let cool. Have a drink. Now you will take what frosting remains and mix it in with the cake. Use your hands. Ball the frostingcake into small forms and stick some pre-loved popsicle sticks into the pastries. Freeze. Drink. Say “cham cham” seven times fast. Faster!
Remove cakeballz from freezer. Add something called “candy coating,” and use the candy you have left over from Halloween 2007-present to decorate.
