Baileys & Coffee Cupcakes

Baileys & Coffee Cupcakes

Espresso-spiked cake makes for a very unique flavor. I’d never tasted a cupcake like it, but I loved it. The cake isn’t too sweet, in a good way. The light-as-a-cloud topper of Baileys-laden whipped cream is the perfect companion; sprinkle some instant espresso on top, and you’re good to go.
