I haven't included quantities for the buttercream as this depends so much on how much Baileys you wish to add and how much buttercream you like on your cakes. It's best just to add a little of each ingredient at a time and keep tasting until you reach the required strength and quantity.
Alternatively if you wish to make this non-alcoholic Baileys could be substituted for a little cooled black coffee.
This recipe can easily be doubled to make more cakes.
Watch our How to ice cupcakes video to see how to dress them up or down for any occasion!
These are just gorgeous! I doubled the recipe and made 15 muffins. Mine took 30 mins in my fan oven. I iced half with the Baileys buttercream (divine) and the other half with chocolate buttercream. I bought an icing nozzle especially for these and am so glad I did. I will definitely be making lots more of them. - 04 Apr 2013
