Bailey's Frosting is easy to make, but has an incredible, rich flavor. Use Bailey's buttercream to top coffee cupcakes to make the most amazing Irish coffee cupcakes.
Welcome to the Taste Creations Blog Hop for March! Our theme this month is Irish Cream Liqueur or Guiness. I decided to show you how easy it is to make one of my favorite buttercream icings, Bailey's Frosting.
Is Bailey's Frosting Alcoholic?
- Yes, this recipe does contain real Bailey's Irish Cream, and so there is some alcohol in the finished product. This one is for the grown-ups!
- If you want the flavor of Bailey's Irish Cream, but don't want any real alcohol, I like using Lorann Oil brand flavorings. They have a very nice Irish Cream flavoring.
Bailey's Buttercream Frosting:
- 2 pounds powdered sugar
- 2 sticks (one cup) butter, softened
- pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur to thin to the consistency you want.
Combine powdered sugar, softened butter, vanilla, and salt in a mixer. Turn the mixer on low and begin to incorporate the ingredients together.
Slowly add the Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur to the mixture until the frosting achieves the consistency you want.
The Bailey's frosting is incredible on coffee cupcakes (to make Irish Coffee Cupcakes!), or used to ice your favorite cake. I'll bet it would be spectacular on Guiness cake!
I couldn't resist covering this cake in Bailey's frosting. It was for the 21st birthday of my daughter's Irish dancing teacher, whose name is Bailee. It was perfect. And delicious.
