    You must have "the recipe" for the bourbon in the frosting, though! ;)

    This made a moist type poundcake. I used black raisins in mine. I made the mistake of using the whiskey in the frosting everyone cut the frosting off the cake. My family doesn't drink any type of alcohol. Made this for Cool Monday's bake-a-thon. Thanks Debster. Bullwinkle
