Regarding cakes with liquor, I have always soaked my finished cake layers in alcohol mixed 50/50 with the preferred liquor and simple syrup. I have never baked the liquor in the cake, because you really don't end up tasting it in the finished product.

 

Just split your cake layers and either sprinkle the liquor and simple syrup on the layer, or brush it on with a pastry brush.

Yes, I think it would be overkill to put liquor into the filling as well as soaking the cake. You just want a little bite from the liquor, not a lot, or the cake will taste like nothing but booze.

You may want to take a spray bottle and just spray your layers with a light coat. This is how I do it. I made a few cakes just recently here , chocolate and raspberry fillings but the layers were sprayed with  50% chambord and 50 % syrup. You have more control of the liquid (I find ).

 

 

 Regarding cooking with alcohol ? As Chefpeon said  "you really don't end up tasting it in the finished product", I agree with this alot. So many people think that it will make a big difference in the cake and in the end, it doesn't.
