Happy Belated St. Patty's Day!

Top o'the Mornin'! Okay, so it's April. What can I say, I've been a tad busy. Anyhoo, better tardy than never, true? These..... darlin's

These chocolate-coffee-and-Bailey's-irish-buttercream cupcakes were a wicked way to celebrate the St. Patty's Day parade. Wicked, I tell 'ye because they were about 80-proof! Unfortunately I tried going low-fat with the cupcakes and used a WW secret "pop cake" shortcut and it was a bit of a Fail. The cake was too crumbly and fell apart out of the paper wrapper. The buttercream was too heavy for it, too. One shot was definitely enough! I'll rework the recipe and make them again, though. You betcha!
