Galliano Harvey Wallbanger Cupcakes

The Harvey Wallbanger Cake is one of my all-time favorite types of cakes – my mom makes them every Christmas and I can pretty much polish the entire thing off by myself (which is probably not a good thing…but sometimes you just can’t help it!).  Anyways, I was excited to come across these yummy-looking Harvey Wallbanger cupcakes in cupcakequeen‘s flickr gallery recently. The recipe is from the book Cupcakes from the Cake Doctor by Anne Byrn ($11.16 at Amazon). I’m thinking this is going to have to be a new addition to the library…

P.S. How cute is the presentation with the little straws?!

    My mom makes this recipe too but as a bundt cake. I love this idea! The straws are a perfect touch since the alcohol in these recipe is what makes them so delicious.
    PS: not a good choice for a baby shower (a mistake I made 2 years ago.) Make a virgin free alternate.

  2. YUM and COME ON – how cute are those with straws in them? What a simple idea that I’m going to steal.

    I have the Anne Byrn cupcake book and I use it all the time and without fail people ask for the recipe. I highly recommend it!

    Ladies, is it safe to assume the alcohol cooks out during baking. Opening a coffe house and would love to serve this but most patrons are college students and under age.
    Thank you

    Hi Katie –
    After a little research, it looks like alcohol does NOT all cook out during baking, so you’re probably safer sticking recipes that don’t include alcohol. Here’s a little more info on the subject:

    However, not all “cocktail themed” dessert recipes have alcohol in them. Fore example, here’s a recipe for Margarita Cupcakes that doesn’t include any alcohol if you use a non-alcoholic frozen margarita mix:

    Good luck with the new business!
