Baileys Irish Cream Cupcakes

I wasn't ready to post some recipes yet so I was pressured when I got an anonymous comment asking of the Bailey's Cupcake recipe. I just checked my Pinterest boards and look for the image source. Now, let me share you the recipe for Baileys Irish Cream Cupcakes from Designs by Gollum.

Baileys Irish Cream Cupcakes
1 box Duncan Hinz dark chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups water
white chocolate chips (if desired)
1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream added to cake mix
4 T Baileys Irish Cream added to icing
Confectioners' sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
Wilton sprinkles
emerald sanding sugar

Preheat the oven. Place paper liners in 2 cupcake pans. Mix the cake according to directions, adding 1/4 cup Irish cream (be sure to decrease the total amount of water used--if the instructions call for 1 1/4 cup water, add 1 cup water and 1/4 cup Baileys). If you're adding white chocolate chips, gently fold them into the mixture. Spoon the lucious batter into the liners. Bake.

After the cupcakes cool, make the icing.
Into the bowl of a KitchenAid mixer, blend 8 oz softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and Baileys Irish Cream (4 tablespoons). Begin with 2 cups of powdered sugar and kept adding bit by bit until the icing reached the proper spreading consistency. As Rachael Ray says, "Eyeball it."
Ice the cupcakes, taking care not to ruin your freshly cleaned kitchen, and garnish with sanding sugar and/or shamrock sprinkles.
