Now you can have your cake..and take it as a shot, too! This is a tasty little shot that looks just like a little cake tart after it sets and turns into a cute little birthday cupcake shot after it is topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. Cook time includes 4 hour chill time. (From Erica's Sweet Tooth)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup cream soda
  • 23 cup cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 (1/4 ounce) envelopes plain gelatin
  • 23 cup cake-flavored vodka (Pinnacle and Three Olives both make it)
  • 3 drops blue food coloring, if desired
  • whipped cream, for garnish
  • candy sprinkles (to garnish)


  1. Lightly spray the mold with non-stick spray and wipe excess off with a paper towel. Don't overdo it or the residue will affect the taste of the jello.
  2. Pour the soda, juice, and cream into a medium saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin on top.
  3. Allow the gelatin to soak for 2-3 minutes, then begin to heat on low, stirring constantly until gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).
  4. Remove saucepan from heat and add vodka and food coloring (if using).
  5. Pour into molds and chill for several hours (at least 4) or overnight, until set. Amazon sells a silicone 30-cavity peanut butter cup mold that works well for this.
  6. Remove from mold, top with whipped cream and sprinkles, and enjoy responsibly!
