With St Patrick’s Day on its way I couldn’t not share a Baileys irish cream recipe, right?! These Baileys Chocolate Cupcakes are super yummy. The chocolate cupcake is flavoured with baileys and then you get a big swirl of baileys buttercream on top. Drizzled chocolate ganache and some gold confetti sprinkles finish everything off.
They look sooooo good, and they taste even better. I love Baileys! The only time I buy it though is for Christmas and for St Patrick’s celebrations. It’s a flavour that I associate with those times and wouldn’t want to change that by using it more often. If you love Baileys like I do you will really want to try my Whipped Baileys and Chocolate Truffles.
I used the gold confetti sprinkles because I thought they would be perfect for St Patrick’s or for Christmas. If you had some gold cupcakes cases they would look great!
When making cupcakes I usually use my handheld mixer because it’s a smaller amount of batter and I find it much easier. I still use my main mixer for the buttercream though because it just makes it so much lighter and fluffier. I used a large closed star nozzle to pipe the swirls fitted into a disposable piping bag. I always use disposable piping bags as I hate to wash the reusable ones! You can see the bottles I always use for my ganache below, I fit them with a very small round nozzle.

Do you do anything on St Patrick’s Day? We don’t really go out for it, but I always like a reason to drink Baileys and Guinness and make lot’s of yummy recipes with them. I’ll be sharing a Guinness cake with you next week so look out for that! If you try the recipe let me know! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
