      This recipe worked out great for St. Patrick's Day! I only made one significant change, I substituted Pamela's Baking Mix for the flour and baking soda because my roommate has Celiac but you never would have known they were gluten free. Will definitely be doing this recipe again but am interested in changing up the frosting with other creamy liqueurs. Who knew making your own frosting could be so easy and so much better than store bought? I've also uploaded a picture of my finished cupcakes all decorated but the photo is waiting approval.

      I have to admit that didn't go exactly by the recipe. DH put in his 3 cents worth and since I can't eat them I had to make them to suite him. The cupcakes are by the letter with the exception of an addition of 2 tablespoons if Irish Cream added in. The real difference came in the frosting, he wanted vanilla buttercream with the Baileys in it so thats what he got and I just put on some kitty faces for cuteness. The cupcakes are a complete success in this house. My apologies Lainey for not finishing them as ask. Made for Photo Tag.
