Bailey’s Irish Buttercream


  • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tiny pinch of salt


  1. Using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, whip the butter on medium-high speed for 5 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  2. Reduce the speed to medium-low and gradually add the powdered sugar until all of it is incorporated.
  3. Add the Baileys, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt. Increase the speed to medium-high and whip for another 2 to 3 minutes, until it is light and fluffy.
  4. Using your favorite decorating tip, or an offset spatula, frost the cupcakes and decorate with sprinkles, if desired.
  5. Store the cupcakes in an airtight container.
