Chocolate Guinness cupcakes with Bailey's Irish Cream icing... I had a version of these for my fall wedding reception- Suffice it to say, they were divine! As foodie blogger Laura notes, she made hers without the whiskey ganache- I agree that they already have a lot going on & the ganache is skippable. Not so skippable... A Bailey's Irish cream on ice as accompaniment!
