Baileys cupcakes

I would like to share an awesome recipe with you guys that I made for my annual  halloween party. (there of the yellow foodcoloring, skip it if you’d like more ‘normal’ cupcakes!)
These are Baileys cupcakes, vanilla cupcake filled with Baileys cream and topped with Baileys buttercream. YUM, a real grownup treat! Even my mum loved these cupcakes ;-)

the cupcake
1/2 cup softened butter
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 cup cold milk

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, stir together all dry ingredients. Add to butter mixture; stir in milk.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a stick comes out clean! meanwhile they are in the oven, make the
bailey’s cream!

100g  white chocolate
2 tbsp Baileys Irish cream
2 tbsp hot cream

Heat the cream and Baileys together, break the white chocolate down in chunks and melt it into the mixture.
Let  cool and thicken up – this will take about 3hours.

When the cupcakes has cooled and the cream has thickened, insert a pipe into the cupcake and fill it with the cream.

Then top it of with the Baileys buttercream.

2 sticks of butter (150g), at room temperature
3 cups icing sugar
2 tbsp baileys ,  or more if you like ;-)

Cream the butter until soft, add the icing sugar a little at the time and then add the baileys to thin it out a bit.
