Guinness Cupcakes

Posted on

So my father-in-laws birthday was coming up so I went to Pinterest and thought what is better than beer. You got it beer cupcakes!

I followed a pin that directed me to My baking addiction

The recipe was very easy to follow and ingredients were nothing out of the ordinary so I had most items on hand. I love that!! It took no longer than a box mix to make the cupcakes but the buttercream was a extra step I am not used to. ( I often just pull out the store bought stuff) it was great though and worth it the extra work for sure. I loved how easily it piped and then set up.

The Guinness/beer flavor is non existent just a deep chocolaty flavor. But the idea of the beer made these just manly enough that all the guys thought they were great. After I added the beer cap to the top of the frosting they could not keep people away. My father-in-law even thought I had gone to a bakery and bought them:)

Guinness Cupcakes pass my “Pintest” for sure we will be making these again. Maybe Fathers day what do you think?


About danielle

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
