I’m absurdly late on this post, but better late than never!
I wanted to make a little treat for St. Patty’s Day that was different and fun, without turning anyone’s mouth green. I decided to do another cupcake, this time themed to everyone’s favorite St. Patrick’s Day libation – the Irish Car Bomb – using three different types of liquor.
It was a Guinness chocolate cupcake with an Irish whiskey ganache filling, topped with a Bailey’s Irish Cream frosting.
I had a lot of fun baking with alcohol in my last post, and had heard of people using Guinness in chocolate cake recipes so I had to give it a chance. It was heaven… just HEAVEN! I finally found my new go-to chocolate cupcake recipe!
I got the recipe from Brown Eyed Baker’s blog and didn’t make any modifications.
Huge thanks to my wonderful and conveniently alcoholic friends for sponsoring the Guinness (Jay), Bailey’s Irish Cream (Katie), and Jameson (Walt).
