Frangelico cupcakes:
    • 1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
    • 3/4 cup Frangelico
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 vegetable oil
    • 3 eggs
Bailey’s Frosting:


  • 2 sticks room temperature butter
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch sea salt
  • chocolate shavings (optional)


  1. Make the cake batter according to the box directions, but I substituted some of the water for Frangelico. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar.
  3. Add the Bailey’s, vanilla, and salt.
  4. Beat until light and fluffy. About 5 minutes.
  5. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes, and top with chocolate shavings.
