Sweet little cupcake

A vanilla cupcake with Baileys buttercream frosting and gold heart sprinkles

Oh, cupcakes. They’re one of my favourite desserts to make. I just love everything about them, from the cake itself, to any little decorations that may sit on top.

That particular cupcake up there is fairly simple: a vanilla cupcake with a Baileys buttercream frosting. But you know what? It was delicious.

The other two flavours I made last weekend were good, too, of course: A cookies and cream, and a chocolate. That vanilla and Baileys combo, though. That was easily my favourite. I would definitely recommend giving it a try sometime.

If you would like to try it, here’s what I did to make them:

  • Made the cupcakes using this Vanilla Cupcakes recipe from Food Network.
  • Started with this Buttercream Frosting recipe from Num’s the Word, but used only one tablespoon of whipping cream and added about two tablespoons of Baileys. If you want a stronger flavour, you can add more Baileys; you might just need to add a little more icing sugar to get the consistency you want.
