Bailey's Irish Cream for tops of cupcakes
After the cupcakes have been baked and cooled, poke a few holes in the top of each cupcake and then pour up to 1 - 2 or 3 teaspoons of Bailey's on the top of each out of the 1 cup of Bailey's. The holes will help the Bailey's reach the interior, infusing the cupcakes. Yum!

Add the salt and vanilla and mix until combined.
Mix in 3-4 Tbsp Irish Cream. Add more or less depending on the consistency of frosting you desire.
