Bake It Irish!

Welcome back to Bailey's Month! This week we're making Bailey's cupcakes, frosted with Bailey's buttercream frosting. Sooooo yummy! Note: I made these from a box mix, if you choose to make the cupcakes from scratch, substitute 1/3c of the called for milk amount with Bailey's.


Bailey's Mini Cupcakes
Printable recipe

Ingredients:
  • One white cake box mix 
  • 1tsp instant coffee
  • 1/3 c Bailey's liqueur 

Frosting:
  • 1lb confectioner's sugar
  • 1/2 cup (2 sticks) butter softened
  • 1/4c + 1Tbsp Bailey's liqueur 
  • 1/4tsp instant coffee



Instructions:
1) Mix cake batter according to instructions on box, substituting 1/3c of the called for amount of water with the 1/3c Bailey's. 
2) Line mini muffin pan cups with liners.
3) Spoon 1Tbsp of batter into each cup.
4) Bake according the box instructions. If making mini cupcakes like I did, subtract 4 minutes from the cupcake bake time.
5) Cool completely before frosting.

Buttercream frosting:
1) Mix together all ingredients first with a spoon until all the sugar is incorporated and then use a hand mixer for smoother, fluffier frosting. 
2) Add more sugar 2 Tbsps at a time if frosting is too thin.
3) Add milk 1Tbsp at a time if frosting is too thick. 
Buttercream-y Baileys-y goodness mmmM!
