Take out Tuesday, Baileys Cupcakes
These delightful little cakes are a sure hit any time of year, but I knew I had to make them for St. Patrick’s Day especially!
The batter and icing are both flavored with Baileys Irish Cream and the batter smells so wonderful as the aroma from this cream liqueur drifts around the kitchen.
I finally got a silicone 24 mini muffin or cupcake pan. These silicone pans make baking cupcakes so easy. When you bake a cupcake in a paper the paper gets greasy. When you bake in the silicone pan, the cakes just pop right out and then you can put them in a decorative paper and they look so pretty!
I got my pan on Amazon.com for $15. Click here for the link.You can find just about ANYTHING you need on Amazon.com, it is my go to website for shopping on line. They often have the lowest prices and offer free shipping on most items too.
Cute little cupcake papers are all over the place now, I always pick up cute ones when I see them and stash them in the pantry. These were packaged with 2 different prints. If you turn some inside out you can make a pretty lining for your cake paper. No need to do one at a time, just invert a whole stack at once and then separate.
Don’t they look fancy?
I think my favorite part about mini cupcakes is putting them in little domes
This is a small painted cloche on a silver chalkboard tray
and there are several other domes at work holding these little beauties!
They look pretty cute tucked into a gift box too…
Tied up with a ribbon for a gift or a party, these cupcakes will be welcome anywhere!
These are easy peasy to make, the recipe is a store bought cake mix with a couple little additions to make it extra tasty!
Here’s the recipe:
BAILEYS CUPCAKES for a printable version click here
1 box White Cake Mix
1 box instant Vanilla pudding mix
1 cup Bailey’s Irish cream
1/3 cup either half and half or buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients together. Beat eggs and add other wet ingredients and combine with dry. Mix on medium speed for 2-3 minutes or until thoroughly combined, batter will be thick. Scoop into paper lined cupcake or mini muffin pans. Bake according to Cake mix directions, and check before time is up, 2-5 minutes, testing for doneness with a toothpick. Do not overbake or they will be dry. Makes about 5 dozen mini cupcakes. Ice with Baileys buttercream icing.
