Boilermaker Large Cake

It's unclear where the boilermaker was invented and why it has it's name. One promising theory comes from boilermakers.orgThey tell the story of how Richard Trevithick built his own steam powered car way back in 1801. To celebrate, Richard and the boys drove what we can only assume was a monster of a truck down to the local pub and hoisted a few. That may have been the start - but to make matters a bit worse, Richard had forgotten to squelch the fire that heated the water that powered the vehicle. One thing led to another and the crew came out of the pub only to find the car in smoldering ruin. As one writer put it - boilermakers are like that - they may start out wonderful - but often lead to ruin. Thankfully this boilermaker Cocktail Cake won't blow up your car, house or your relationship. Just a sweet treat.
