Although today is not the kind of 'national' day that lets us sleep in, it does call us to celebrate. Today is National Liqueur Day! Yes, there really is such a thing.
And just in time for the holidays Kerrygold has introduced a new Irish Cream Liqueur to the Florida market. I have purchased many delicious Kerrygold cheeses and their lovely REAL butter, but an Irish Cream? Well why hasn't it happened sooner?
Preheat oven to 350 F
Using a large mixing bowl, add cake mix, eggs, butter, Irish Cream, and milk and mix on low until combined. Then mix on high for 2 minutes. Pour batter into paper lined cupcake pans. Bake for 20 min. Cool completely. In large mixing bowl mix cream, shortening and vanilla for 2-4 minutes. Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time. Combine Irish Cream with cream in measuring cup and slowly add to sugar mixture, using more cream for a creamy consistency, use less milk for a stiff consistency. Garnish with chocolate and caramel syrup.
Let me know they turn out and CHEERS to National Liqueur Day. Bravo Kerrygold.
