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 in this post (if you are the video watching type) that my 3rd wedding couple, 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.
