I know that I've seen someone post some pictures on here of some Irish Car Bomb cupcakes. I'd love to know the recipe so I can make some for my dad's birthday coming up this weekend. Thanks in advance! icon_biggrin.gif

You can Google the words "irish car bomb cake or cupcakes" and it will come up. I have seen the recipe, but didn't save it. But it's out there in the internet world.

Blimey, that's quite a weird name for something sweet. As someone from the UK, I think we would have to find a slightly more appropriate name. It makes me feel a little uncomfortable. icon_confused.gif

Sorry everyone for the name of the cupcake thumbsdown.gif .....I thought it just sounded delicious. Thanks for the link luvbuttercream! This sounds absolutely delish!!! Maybe we can think of a different name for it.....any ideas?? icon_lol.gif

That is the name of the alcoholic shot drink the cupcake is fashioned after.....there are lots and lots of pretty tacky names for shots, some outrageously tacky and big time offensive in my opinion.....but changing the name would kind of defeat the purpose of making a cupcake to match the shot, I would think...but heck, what do I know, call it whatever you want...!!!!! icon_smile.gif

As someone who spent 10 years in the military in the UK and had to check under her car every time she went out to her car I do find it quite a tackless name. thumbsdown.giftapedshut.gif

I have a recipe for chocolate Guinness cake with Bailey's in the icing... I make it for the Irish side of my family on St. Patrick's Day. But we just call it the Guinness cake.

Here is the recipe I use for car bomb cupcakes - they are quite popular where I live (people don't get their knickers in a twist about the name here). Good luck and enjoy them!

by the way - I live in Ireland.

You are so welcome. Everything I have tried on there has been a winner and the Guinness Cupcakes are the hit of my town...

Have fun!

When I get an email from her, I am always ready to spark up the ole cooker to try whatever she's made.

I just made these cupcakes this weekend and they are just divine! I highly suggest them - but maybe not for your kids birthday party! I ended up adding more whiskey to the gnosh and a LOT more Baileys to the frosting. They were a big hit!!
