Spiked Red Velvet Cupcakes

It’s that time of the year again, when baking is at an all time high. One of my favorite cakes to bake is red velvet. Let’s be honest red velvet is one of the best cakes ever, but it’s really just a chocolate cake with food coloring, lol. Nonetheless, it’s still one of my favorite.

While visiting family in Dayton, OH, I noticed Bailey’s released a limited edition Red Velvet drink. Now, Baileys is great in coffee and drinks, but I wondered how would it taste in a cake. So I decided to try to a spiked red velvet cake. Baileys hit the nail on the head with the taste, but would it translate in a cake? Yes, it did. It was really good. You get a hint of the Baileys and it did not over power the cake.

Here is my recipe for a “Spiked Red Velvet Cake”.

If you do not like the butter cream consistency, simple add in a cup of whip cream. Now your icing is light and airy.

​Meals and Miles was created by Monique and Leon Tillman. This site was developed to share our trips, food, and tips with the world.  We want people to see and know that you do not have to be rich to travel and eat well. We hope to inspire individuals and couples to try new adventures and foods. Seek adventures you never thought of and live on the wild side while enjoying each other. LIVE A LITTLE MORE, EXPAND YOUR BOUNDARIES AND HAVE BLAST! ​ The idea for Meals and Miles came one summer evening in July of 2014, while riding in the car to Washington D.C.  Monique always wanted to start a blog, but never knew what to blog about. We were laughing at some of the adjectives our friends use to describe us and our love for traveling. So we thought, "Why not show others how to have fun with their spouse? Why not blog about our trips? Why not show people the things we do?" We thought of names for our site the whole weekend. And during one of our random laugh sessions, as Leon was talking crazy, meals and miles came up and it stuck! ​ We have traveled to a total of 31 of 50 states, 11 Island, and 5 countries! ​ On this site we will post our trips, photos, and reviews for various destinations, restaurants, and accommodations. Please leave vacation reviews and comments in the designated areas.  Now owner, Monique Tillman is an official Independent Travel Agent with InteleTravel.com. She can book anything from hotel accommodations, airline tickets, vacation packages, car rental, tours, excursion, etc. Although Meals and Miles is our brand, trips will be booked under Monique Tillman as an Independent Agent for Inteletravel. Meals and Miles site will promote vacation deals, but please be clear ALL vacations will be booked under Monique Tillman as Independent Agent with Inteletravel.com.
