I came up with this for some irish friends of mine. They LOVED it. I filled and iced a tier of their cake using this icing.


  • 2 Boxes yellow cake mix
  • 6 eggs
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cup Bailey’s

  • Bailey’s Butter Icing/Filliing

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup Bailey’s
  • 2 1/2 cup Powdered sugar.


    Cake: Bake at 350 until done. I used 2 8-inch pans for this, and had a little left over for a single 6 inch round for my family.
    For Icing: Mix until smooth. Fill and ice.
    I made this a few weeks ago, and i think i ended up adding a little extra Bailey’s to the icing, but now i can’t remember exactly how much….so you might want to play around a little with this.

Did you simply substitute milk with Bailey's, in which case can this be used in any recipe substituting the milk component with Bailey's (e.g. a choc cake made from scratch, as opposed to using pre-mix cake?)
