    I'm baking a cherry liqueur cake the recipe calls for 3/4 cup vegetable oil and 3/4 cup cherry liqueur.  I don't have any vegetable oil.  Can peanut oil or olive oil can be used instead?

    If a trip to the market to get some veg oil is out of the question, use peanut oil.  olive oil has too much flavor that wouldn't be very nice in a cake.
