St Patrick's Day: Bailey Cupcakes

Since I will not be celebrating St. Patrick's Day in the traditional sense, my friend and I decided to make  some festive cupcakes for the occasion. I have made Bailey's Cupcakes in the past but these are a bit different and I think they turned out even better. The buttercream was AMAZING and there was actually almost a full cup of baileys right in the actual cupcake. This is a recipe I am sure will be requested again and again!  

For the Cupcakes (Makes 12): 
1 Cup All Purpose Flour 
1/4 Cup Unsweetneed Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 Cup sugar
1 large egg 
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup Baileys 

For the Icing 
1 Cup butter, room temperature
Approx 3 Cups icing sugar 
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
2 table spoons baileys

Preheat oven to 350 F. 
In a bowl combine flour, cocoa power, baking soda and salt
In a separate bowl whisk together egg and sugar. Stir in vanilla and melted butter. Add flour mixture in two parts, alternating with sour cream. Stir in Baileys. 

Spoon batter into cupcake lined pan. Fill about 2/3s full. Bake for 15-18mins or until tooth pick inserted into centre comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting. 

Beat butter with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add in icing sugar slowly. Beat in vanilla and Baileys until fluffy.
