These beautiful St. Patrick's Day cupcakes are above and beyond your typical shamrock! They're made with Bailey's Irish Cream/Frangelico/Creme de Cacao buttercream and blogger Pink Martinis and Pearls has the recipe and cupcake decorating tips. Happy, boozy cupcake making!
From the post:
These friends play together beautifully and are three of the five ingredients in the espresso martinis that I love.
Bailey’s is creamy goodness. Frangelico is hazelnut-flavored liqueur and Crème de Cacao has a light chocolate flavor.
For the cupcakes, I substituted the liquid ingredients in the batter with two espresso martinis. Texturally, the recipe works but the intensity of the alcohol needs some refining but what I came up with for the icing is absolute perfection and I’d like to share the Irish love with you and how to decorate the shamrock cupcakes.
