    Not really a cake, but my wife tried something new this year as far as Christmas cookies go. She made bourbon-pecan tassies. They're a bit like a bourbon pecan pie in a mini pastry cup. Good stuff. Joe

    Looks very good and the price is very reasonable too for the weight of the cake.

    Re: Christmas cakes....

    I posted this recipe on my blog a couple weeks back. I made it last year and it turned out pretty darn good which I think had to do with the basting process three weeks prior to serving.

    Regan's book has a great Bourbon Shortbread recipe, that I use to make shortbread cookies.

    We took one of these over to the neighbors yesterday for a Christmas brunch. The neighbors gandkids, ages 5 and 7, asked if they could have some. Since all the alchohol is evaporated during cooking, we said sure.

    They ran to their mom, screaming with excitement: "Yay... we're going to have some 'Burp N Cake'!"
