Bailey’s and Orange Cupcakes with Bailey’s Buttercream

I had my first order for a batch of cupcakes over the weekend! So exciting! I was given one item on the specification- It had to be christmassy!

I decided to find a recipe with Bailey’s in it and conveniently found a recipe on the Bailey’s website.

Every single cupcake turned out identical. They all rose beautifully as well! In comparison to some of the other recipes I use, it’s a little bit drier (not necessarily a bad thing) which meant there was a crunchy outer layer which gives a really nice bite, but means you need to have a really creamy and rich buttercream! The citrus flavour from the orange combines with the alcohol in the baileys and creates ‘subtle’ kick.

For the Bailey’s  buttercream, I used a video on Youtube- my favourite kind of recipe method as you can watch them do it too and know exactly what to look for!

The recipe was :

1/2 Cup (113g) Butter

4 Cups (280g) Icing Sugar

3-4 Tablespoons of Baileys

  • Cream the butter.
  • Add about 1/3 of the icing sugar and mix. Add a tablespoon of Baileys and mix.
  • Keep alternating with the rest of the icing sugar and Baileys.
  • When you’ve finished,  if your buttercream is too solid, add more Baileys to loosen it up and if it’s too runny, add more icing sugar.

Until next time!

  1. I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made just right content as you did, the web will likely be
    much more helpful than ever before.
