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.
