Setting browser.cache.disk.parent_directory to dynamic location (different for each user)

I’m attempting to set browser.cache.disk.parent_directory in about:config to a custom dynamic path string using the Windows %username% variable in order to make it so that each Windows account has its Firefox cache in a different location that is somewhere other than each user’s AppData. What I tried to use was this:

T:\Users\%username%\Firefox\Cache

However, that created a folder path with %username% (literally, not substituted by its value as a Windows variable) as part of it. Is there some way for me to accomplish this?
