Black & Tan Cakes with Irish Cream Glaze

How about we start celebrating the Irish way… with a lot of alcohol!

Yeah, I see what that bad boy is missing.

Whoop! There it is!

These little babies were supposed to be cupcakes… they were also supposed to be made with a pure stout, but all we had was Black and Tan, so I went with it. If I am making a cupcake though, I want it piled high with icing, and I wasn’t sure Irish Cream icing on a Black and Tan cupcake wouldn’t be too much, so I decided to whip out my adorable mini cake pan. I hope you guys aren’t getting too used to it. I’ll make cupcakes soon, I promise…. After I make the 10 million other new treats I have recently discovered for you.

These cakes are more for adults, and I’m not just talking for the obvious reasons. They aren’t overly sweet, like one would expect from a cake. So know going into these aren’t for people who aren’t open to new things. They had a mild sweetness, and were kind of a nice change from the things I’ve been baking around here lately.

[...] Black & Tan Irish Cakes with Irish Cream Glaze [...]

If you're celebrating Irishness you really, really shouldn't have picked Black & Tan. Just another example of people 'celebrating' St Patrick's day without having a clue about Irish history and culture. You don't at least remember when Ben and Jerry's had to pull their 'Black and Tan' flavour because it deeply offended Irish people? I'm sure they're tasty and you didn't mean to offend anyone but ... do your research next time.
