This Irish Cream Buttercream is extra smooth, rich in sweet Irish cream flavour. It is perfect for piping cupcakes, covering and layering cakes. You can also achieve beautiful bright colours due to its similarity to traditional buttercream. Use it as a delicious topping on my Baileys Irish Cream Cupcakes for a perfect St Patrick’s Day treat.

In this recipe you may use 40 to 60 ml of Baileys Irish Cream giving a richer flavour with the 60 ml. Be aware that the more Baileys added, the more risk of the buttercream becoming soft or runny. I used 40 ml in my recipe.
Please note that I provide all ingredients in grams where applicable. I also provide the measurements in METRIC cup measurements. Be aware that cup measurements vary in different countries. Therefore, I highly recommended the use of food scales to measure ingredients to achieve exactly what the recipe intends.
Icing sugar is also known as powdered sugar.
Store the Irish Cream buttercream sealed in an airtight container. You may store in the fridge for up to 4-5 days and at cool room temperature for up to 2-3 days. If stored in the fridge bring to room temperature before using again. The buttercream will harden. You may re whip with a metal spoon.
