Bailey’s Irish Cream Frosting Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This Bailey’s Irish Cream Frosting Recipe is everything I love about the original…it’s sweet, creamy, and delicious.

I have enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table with my dad or Charlotte the Great, adding Bailey’s Irish Cream to our coffee.

I have indulged in the delicious taste in its pure form poured over ice.

Now, I’m sharing how to make Bailey’s Irish Cream frosting for a delectable topping to cupcakes, cakes, and more!

Sometimes the occasion calls for buttercream and sometimes, you want boozy buttercream and this Irish Cream Buttercream does not disappoint!

It’s sweet, creamy, delicious, and has just a hint of Bailies Irish Cream Liqueur.

You’ll want to keep an eye on the consistency of your frosting and my rule of thumb is to always, always taste the frosting. It may need more Bailey’s Irish Cream!

This recipe should make enough frosting to cover a 13-inch x 9-inch sheet cake, 2-layer round 8-inch cake, 24 cupcakes (applied with a knife) if you opt to pipe it on as a swirl probably 12-15 cupcakes.
