New bakery features alcohol-flavored desserts

A new bakery is setting itself apart from the competition by crafting desserts with Fireball, Kahlua and Rumchata.

Intoxibakes launched its alcohol-infused treats online Nov. 1. It’s the concoction of Holly Boltjes and her daughter, Josie Layton, and future daughter-in-law Shannon Gilbertson.

Using alcohol as the star ingredient for the cupcakes, cakes and pies is generating orders for lots of celebrations, Boltjes said.

“We’re getting birthday parties, we’ve got a couple of weddings coming up, bachelorette parties … things like that.”

They’ve crafted recipes for everything from a bourbon, maple and bacon cupcake to a Baileys Irish Cream cheesecake. The menu includes 10 types of cupcakes, two pies, two cheesecakes and one cake, and any cupcake flavor can be made as a cake, too. A dozen cupcakes ranges from $29 to $33.

While the alcohol bakes out, some of the frostings are flavored with it and some desserts are drizzled with it, “so you’re still getting the flavor but not enough to give anyone a buzz,” Boltjes said.

Intoxibakes will accommodate custom orders if someone has a favorite flavor, and it can bake desserts without alcohol, she said. It offers free delivery in Sioux Falls and charges $5 for other areas. Boltjes said they hope to add shipping in the first half of next year.

The business uses the kitchen at a bakery in Parker, so it needs 48 hours’ notice to prepare orders.

“We always bake together if possible,” Boltjes said. “It’s a team effort.”

The goal is to have a storefront next year, and they’ve started scouting locations, she said.

For now, customers, who must be 21 or older, can order at intoxibakessd.com or call Boltjes at 605-351-2789.
