St Patrick’s Day is almost a week away, can you believe it?!?! Where is all the time going? Anyways, since most holidays have themed pastries we figured we would combined our love of pastries with our love for Guinness!

I found this recipe on the blog Rick on the Rocks! This recipe is super easy to follow and the cupcakes are super yummy! I personally was not a fan of the Bailey’s Frosting but some of our staff loved it, so I ended up making half with the Bailey’s frosting and I just made a buttercream frosting for the other half! I hope you guys love these cupcakes as much as we do,make sure to let us know what you think! Happy St . Patrick’s Day!!!! Xoxo – Gabi
