17/3/12- Happy Paddys Day!

Happy Paddy's Day!
(I know, it was two days ago- but we were too busy celebrating for me to post!)

I made these cupcakes in celebration of the day, and I have to tell you that they turned out amazing. I think using Guinness in the cake allows the cakes to stay moist, and you really can't taste it (just in case you are not a fan). I highly suggest giving these a try next year, or for any old reason.

100% positive feedback from all that I gifted these to, and I think I will make them again next year. 

We had a fantastic Paddy's day. Its not about green beer or leprechauns as the day has become in North America. We are lucky to celebrate with a fantastic group of Irish lads and lassies, and plenty of Guinness was consumed.

Lovely, chocolatey, Guinness cakes

A bit of Baileys in the icing...

And whiskey in the chocolate ganache

Finished product!

Happy Paddys Day!


  1. These cup cakes look and sound delicious, I'm going to try them out this week, I'll let you know how they turn out

  2. Those look so delicious! I love baking with alcohol, it give an extra little excitement to it. Also those little cupcake signs are so cute! Sounds like you had a great St. Patrick's Day.

  3. Yum! Those look absolutely delicious! I'll definitely have to try them next year.

  4. Mmm... I love Guinness cake! So rich and dense.
