I am fortunate enough to have my dream job of staying at home with my two beautiful daughters. I've been happily married for 6 years and counting! I am a lover of all things french, all things pink, and anything that sparkles. Serioulsy, my husband calls me a crow. I love baking, crafting and throwing big parties, especially if they have a theme. Right now, I'm in love Pinterest. My Hero is Heather from Sprinkle Bakes and my mom.

Sugary Shenanigans.

OK you lucky people that get TWO blog post in a row! I really do spoil you don't I? I'm not exactly doing a St. Patrick's Day countdown or anything, I'm just really jazzed when a new holiday/event/theme comes around. So the posts will eventually taper out.

So here are my Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes with Irish Cream Buttercream Frosting. 
(They're really good. I'm telling you,  you need to make these!)

What you need to make these wee cakes:

1 box of chocolate fudge cake mix, yes, yes I used a mix!

These are dangerous. AND they come in peanut butter.
1/2 package of Presidents Choice Mini-Fudge bites, You can snack on the other half :)

1 cup of butter

1 bag of icing sugar

1/4 - 1/2 cup of Irish cream coffee creamer, or for adults only, you could use Bailey's.

Make your cake mix and fill your cupcake liners or if you like washing pans, fill your cupcake pans.

Put approximately 1 tablespoon of fudge bites in every cupcake.

Bake as box directs. When done, cool completely.

For the Frosting:

Whip up butter in mixer, when fluffy mix in icing sugar, 1 cup at a time.

Add Irish cream coffee creamer a tablespoon at a time, until mixture is fluffy.

Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.

Aren't they cute?!

To be honest, there weren't really any shenanigans while I was baking these cupcakes, I just really wanted to use that word. A) it sounded Irish and B) it's just really fun to say a bunch of times. Shenanigans!
