Oozee Boozee Bakes
Oozee Boozee Bakes are based in Nottingham and make a huge range of amazing cakes and bakes using different alcoholic drinks as a key ingredient. They are, as owner Fran says, “baked with love and liquor”.
Don’t think sherry trifle or tiramisu here, Oozee Boozee’s range is rather more adventurous, including wedding cakes, made to order cakes, desserts and puddings and a range of regular bakes that include such delights as ‘Drunken Jammy Dodgers’, ‘Blind Drunk Brownies’ and ‘French Brandy Apple Roses’.
The cakes are stylish and beautifully presented and the quality of the baking certainly isn’t compromised by the quirky additions. Fran started her business in 2015, spotting a gap in the market for creative bakes with booze, and it is still the only cake business in Nottingham that specialises in alcohol infusion.
Partial to the odd gin and tonic, we tried the ‘It’s Gin O’clock Bundt Cake’, which was absolutely delicious with a proper gin flavour and good lime tang. In the interests of further research (ahem), we also tried the ‘Boozee Banana and Rum Loaf’, which was superb, moist and light – just perfect with a cup of tea.
