Fruitcake, I think we can all agree, is not a tasty treat. But if you distill the booziness and the cakiness and turn it into a jelly shot, I can get behind it.
I don't think you can make an actual, normal cupcake with booze in it, so this is a perfect variation. With all the new cupcake and whipped cream flavored vodkas on the market now you can make all sorts of boozy faux baked goods. This is the kind of baking I can get behind.
This is a classy step up from the spodi we drank in college, that's for sure! Think of all the delicious melon-tinged beverages you could serve out of this baby! I'd fill it with champagne and a little triple sec and the juice from the melon and I'd sit back and sigh deeply with contentment.
