Nothing says Saint Patrick’s Day like these Bailey’s Irish Dream cupcakes. What makes them so perfect for the holiday? It’s not the green sprinkles or Shamrocks covering them; it’s the addition of Guiness in the cupcake batter (alongside the usual butter, cocoa powder, flour, sugar, salt and baking soda), and the Bailey’s Irish Cream in the frosting, plus sugar and butter, of course. They may look harmless, but these treats pack quite a punch!
These cupcakes make you with St. Patrick’s Day was everyday. The cupcake is composed of chocolate with Guinness holding a buttercream stuffing together with velvety rich whiskey icing on top. Great for late at night, this light, fluffy cupcake has just the right amount of fluffiness to balance out the rich, creamy flavor of all your usual St. Patrick’s Day favorites. The coffee in the cupcake just makes the cocoa powder taste to much more distinct, you may end up preferring your Bailey’s and Guinness in a cupcake this good all the time.
