Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and we have the PERFECT dessert to kick off the holiday! For those of you that are not familiar an Irish Car Bomb is a type of drink typically reserved for St. Patrick’s Day festivities. You take a pint of Guinness, drop in a shot glass filled half with Bailey’s and half with Jameson and then CHUG. If you don’t drink it quickly the cream with curdle…gross. So, these cupcakes have Guinness in the cake, Jameson in the ganache filling, and Bailey’s in the frosting. They are time-consuming to make, but they have been a hit every year I’ve made them and they taste delicious! The Guinness bakes out in the cake, there isn’t too much Jameson in the ganache, and the Bailey’s blends well with a standard buttercream. Find the full recipe on!
