Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes with Irish Whiskey Frosting

March 31, 2013

Chocolate Guinness cake, Guinness glaze, chocolate whiskey Irish Cream filling, and chocolate whiskey buttercream (dark) / Bailey’s buttercream (light)

A little late for St. Patrick’s Day, but these cupcakes are perfectly themed for then – or anytime, really.  Guinness adds some richness and depth of flavor to the chocolate cake, and makes it quite moist as well.

The cake, chocolate cupcake filling, and Bailey’s frosting are all from this AllRecipes recipe.  The chocolate whiskey version of the frosting is based on Glorious Treats’ chocolate cream cheese buttercream with a tablespoon of Irish whiskey added, then enough powdered sugar to ensure the frosting isn’t too runny.
