5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. These are tender golden cupcakes with a silky Irish cream frosting! Potatoes might seem like an odd ingredient, but you can't taste it at all & it makes the cupcakes extra moist. The frosting is super addictive!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 1/4 ounce) package white cake mix
  • 1 cup Simply Potatoes Traditional Mashed Potatoes, room temperature
  • 1 cup irish cream, divided
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups butter, room temperature

Directions

  2. Line a cupcake tin with paper baking cups and fill each with 2/3C batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until tops are a light golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
