Ingredients:

For the Cupcakes:
1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® devil’s food cake mix
1 1/4 cups stout beer
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs

For the Buttercream Frosting:
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 box (1 lb) powdered sugar (4 cups)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 to 4 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place foil or paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.

In large bowl, beat all cupcake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter among muffin cups.

In large bowl, beat shortening and butter with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating until combined. Add vanilla and 2 tablespoons of the liqueur; beat until blended. Add enough of the remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons liqueur, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating until frosting is light and fluffy.

Spoon frosting into decorating bag fitted with #1M star tip; pipe frosting in circular pattern on tops of cupcakes.
