Party Like it’s 1921: Brittany’s Kahlua Birthday Cake

Birthdays are a big deal to me and my friends- the dinners are always delicious, the cakes delightful and the parties wonderfully themed! Anybody can have a get together, but for our group, we like to give them a general idea- Superheros to drag queens, halloween to potlucks, they never disappoint.

My friend Brittany’s party was a swingin’ prohibition theme where guests came as gangsters, flappers and jazz musicians. Everyone took a new role with an alternate name, slipped on their fishnets and tightened their ties- it was the bee’s knees! Playing the part meant sneaking alcohol into the party and my way was through cake, a Kahlua Cake! It was a giant hit so try this one out for one of your friends, their party doesn’t even have to be 20s themed!

Chocolate Kahlua Cake

  • 1 package chocolate cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 6oz Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Kahlua
  • Vegetable oil (amount depends on cake mix)
  1. Mix cake, eggs, sour cream, Kahlua, oil (from the cake recipe) and chocolate chips.
  2. Butter 2 9″ circular cake pans and dust with flour. Pour batter evenly into the pans
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60 minutes or until top of cake bounces back
  4. Frost with frosting once cakes have completely cooled and decorate with candles! Enjoy!
