I try to keep the recipes on this site fairly dad-centric. Whether it be something dads would like to cook, eat or make with the kids. How about some dessert, but not just any dessert… One of the best desserts of all time! How about some Guinness cupcakes with Bailey’s frosting?
With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I’ve decided to pull out a holiday favorite of mine. Crack a Guinness, pour a shot of Bailey’s, because…
We’re gonna make cupcakes baby!!!
But not just any cupcake, we’ve got a manly cupcake. Our cupcakes are going to have beer and liquor in them. These little beauties are for all the dads who needed an excuse to learn how to make one of the most perfect desserts in the world.
