This Baileys Buttercream Frosting recipe is something I have been wanting to work on for over a year. It’s been sitting in my “future post ideas” folder on Wunderlist forever. I finally got around to doing it, and it’s a keeper.

Seriously why did I wait this long to make it?

This frosting is creamy and spreads beautifully over cake. Using Baileys Irish Cream instead of whipped cream keeps it smooth but adds a bit of a bite, making this buttercream a new guilty pleasure. It’s my new favorite buttercream recipe!

Baileys Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup Baileys Irish Cream (dependant on the strength you want)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl use a mixer (or hand mixer) to beat butter and sugar. Start on a slow speed and work your way up. Beat until fluffy – about two minutes.
  2. Scrape the bowl, add 1/4 cup of Baileys and vanilla.
  3. Turn the beater to high and let it whip up for 4 minutes. You may need to pause and scrape the bowl a few times.
  4. Taste the Baileys Buttercream Frosting and test the strength. If you want it a little more boozy add an extra two tablespoons. Whip for another few minutes.

  4. Hey!! This looks delicious! I was wanting to use a baileys buttercream as a base to put fondant over- will this buttercream crust, or will it stay really soft? Thanks 🙂

    • That is a good question, I’m trying to remember now.. hmmm.

      I think it should crust, if not maybe toss it in the freezer a bit? I’m not 100% sure though!

  5. If I’m correct, I can pipe this frosting into flowers as well? Looks stiff enough. Dye too?

  6. Hello,

    I’m not much of a baker. Can I use premade buttercream frosting , add baileys to it and whip it up?

    Thanks

  7. Can I substitute Baileys coffee creamer to make it non-alcoholic?
