These delicious chocolate cupcakes receive an adult kick with a decadent frosting infused with Baileys Irish Cream to give the cakes an aromatic sweet vanilla notes. These would be ideal to serve during the fall and winter months when Baileys is often featured in hot beverages.
These cupcakes are made from a batter consisting of homemade cocoa powder, salt, spices, eggs, milk, vanilla and oil to make a rich dense base. The cupcakes are then topped with a homemade cream cheese frosting infused with sugar, salt and a quarter cup of Baileys Irish Cream to give the frosting a rich coffee flavor. The liqueur also turns the frosting a festive light golden hue. The cupcakes can be decorated with fondant embellishments, sprinkles or left as is.
