For the Cupcakes:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1/2 cup whole milk

For the Baileys Irish Cream Frosting:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

2 cups confectioners' sugar

2-3 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream

Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.

Make the Cupcake Batter:

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk and Irish whiskey. Mix until smooth.

Fill and Bake:

Spoon the batter into the prepared cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let the cupcakes cool completely on a wire rack.

Prepare the Baileys Irish Cream Frosting:
