I stick butter, room temperature

2 cups confectioner's sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla

3 Tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream Liquor

In a large mixing bowl with hand mixer beat butter, sugar and vanilla.  Add Bailey's one tablespoon at a time until Icing is fluffy, but stiff enough to pipe through a piping bag if desired.

Place icing in piping bag with large star tip.  Swirl Icing on top of cooled cupcakes like a creamy whip.
