Mudslide Cupcakes with Baileys Irish Cream Whipped Cream

The expression “Don’t judge a book by its cover” should never apply to cupcakes. While these mudslide cupcakes are tasty, their cover (a sweet Baileys Irish Cream whipped cream) is the exceptional part. In fact, several tasters said that they would have been happy to eat a big bowl of the whipped cream sans cupcake.

You’ll see in the video at the bottom of this post (if you are the video watching type) that Bride and Groom 3.0 found the mudslide cupcakes to be a bit dry. I say that if you have the cupcakes with a big bite of the Baileys whipped cream and perhaps a sip of coffee with some more of the whipped cream on top, you’ve got yourself a moist and memorable morning treat.

  • 2 C heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 C sugar
  • 2 T homemade Baileys Irish Cream yes, store-bought would work just fine


  • Whip heavy whipping cream until it looks like whipped cream.
  • Mix in sugar and Baileys Irish Cream until just combined.


You may find yourself wanting to double the recipe if you like gobs of frosting. I'd suggest stocking up on some extra heavy whipping cream.

  1. Naomisays:

    please bring me a cupcake :). It’s part of your matron of honor duty.

  2. Mr. Psays:

    They sound amazing, and I love the wrappers.

    I never really think I like cream, especially when it’s whipped, but I can just imagine how the Baileys takes the edge off…

  3. Nancysays:

    I loved the coffee flavor and thought it could have been even stronger. I’m also one of those people who requested vats of the BIC Whipped Cream…Could I eat it on a train, could I eat it all just plain? Could I eat it with a spoon, would it leave me in a swoon? Oh lucky me, oh happy me; I live near where the cupcakes be!

  4. With a cupcake as delectable as that, I do not think I would be the least bit bothered if it were really “a bit dry.” Judging from the looks of it and your description of the cream topping, I would be lost in the taste of the cream alone that I would hardly pay attention to other less significant details like the moistness of the cupcake itself.

  5. Elianasays:

    These look and sound divine. Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family.

  6. I am going to make these cupcakes this weekend. :) thank you so much

  7. I’ve ordered from Sugar Cat before. She was so nice and rushed an order for me.

  8. Ivysays:

    This is one super classy cupcake! :)

  9. Gigisays:

    oh the cupcake liners are to die for! super cute. the cupcakes look divine.

  10. Happy New Year! I love your cupcakes and that colorful cupcake dress! I’ sorry about that. That is what I call them.

  11. So funny to hear that another woman hates the word “moist”. I went to highschool with a girl who HATED that word! Lol

  12. Corrinesays:

    Baked these on the weekend and got rave reviews. Thanks SO much for all the fantastic ideas! A quick question for anyone who might have time: how do you make whipped cream that you can pipe and hold it’s shape like that? Mine wound up melting into a giant blob as soon as it was on. It still tasted awesome but I’d love mine to look as nice as the pictures. Thanks!

  13. Stefsays:

    Corrine – The problems you are having may have to do with the temperature and humidity in your house. Do you store them in your refrigerator?

  14. Anonymoussays:

    These sound delicious! Do you use regular sugar for the frosting or confectioner’s?

  15. Danisays:

    Where do you get the cute wrappers?

  16. Stefsays:

    Dani – These wrappers were from Sugar Cat Studio .

  17. derecksays:

    Everything looks beautiful, but very difficult to prepare…especially for lazy))

  18. Anonymoussays:

    A friend of mine emailed me this recipe and I made this last weekend. They turned out amazing! I took them to where my daughter works and the girls were fighting over them. I will make these again!

  19. Anonymoussays:

    So delicious! I used Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream, and 1/4 c less flour and they were super moist and fabulous!

  20. Mama Alisays:

    Would using 3 T of strong brewed coffee instead of the ground coffee help with the moisture? I can’t wait to try these. My husband will be stoked!

  21. Kristinsays:

    Just wanted to say I tried your Bailey’s Irish cream whipped cream and it was the amazing! I used it to top off a guinness cupcake with jameson ganache. So far I have loved all your frostings I’ve tried.

  22. scegansays:

    can you use vanilla bean instead of vanilla extract?

  23. wow, thank you SOO so mucho for this and the diy baileys cream recipe. after a wonderful date night, i had a sudden baking moment and a little past 11pm, headed down to my store to pick up the spare items. wow. i couldnt wait for either to be done, so i made a makeshift baileys cream drink. leftover espresso(took user aboves advice, mainly to incorporate cocoa powder cause i dont use syrups) and a bit of melted ice cream. and some other ingrediants. albeit nothing like the coffee with the finished product, not bad. and im sitting here…counting down the seconds until the muffins and heart cake are done. yours look beautiful, and i must admit, ive been staring at them for a good ten minutes.

  24. Rigelsays:

    Hey! Quick question with this recipe what are the exact measurements. Does t means teaspoon and does big T mean tablespoon? Thanks :)

  25. barbarasays:

    I want to try these so bad….but 1 question…ground coffee???? Is that instant ground or not instant ???
