Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

This is one of my husband’s favorite drinks, if you have ever seen it done its quite entertaining. You take a pint glass fill it half full of Guinness (note: Draft not Stout), take a shot glass add a shot of whiskey (preferably Jamison’s) and top it with Baileys. You then take the shot glass and drop it into the pint glass and gulp it down all at once. First one done has the bragging rights.  Now I have no interest in drinking this drink but the cupcakes, they were good. Not only was the cake, which had Guinness baked in it, but the frosting, holy cow. I could have pulled up a chair and made it a meal. I researched this recipe all over the place and many people use different amounts of Bailey’s for the frosting but this recipe definitely got it right, it did not disappoint.


I had so much ganache left over after filling the cupcakes I went ahead and added some on top, it made for a pretty presentation. I made these for a world cup party hence the soccer balls.

Since I didn’t change the recipe in any way and this one give such fabulous directions I will just post the link.
