Bailey’s Irish Creme is a fantastic compliment to desserts.  This is a mocha flavored cupcake with a Bailey’s buttercream.  To get the perfect buttercream you need have the right balance of liquid to powdered sugar and must whip the buttercream for a sufficient period of time.  A good buttercream will be fluffy.  If you add too much liquid, the buttercream will not hold its shape.  If you do not add enough liquid, the buttercream will be stiff and difficult to pipe.  Do not stress – just keep taste testing your batch until it is perfect.  Taste testing – one of the perks of baking!
