My debut novel is out! Check it out! I think it is HILARIOUS! I hope you will, too!
These guys are as easy as can be. You could make them with your favorite “from scratch” cupcake recipe or just buy a box of cake mix. Same with the frosting. I had to make a dinner for 12 the other day and, as it was a dual birthday celebration – desserts were a must. I just didn’t have time to get all fancified with these. Or even to photograph them properly – so – pardon the bare bones effort here.
If you haven’t tried Fireball whiskey but you like a cocktail & you like to pretend you aren’t really having one – this Fireball is for you. I cannot stomach any brown liquors or whiskey, in general, but this stuff is candy in a bottle & I promise you will NOT taste whiskey. At all. My badass boyfriend Miles is in town for our anniversary (today!) and he has a weakness for this Fireball elixir and I thought I’d experiment with it in cupcakes. It worked & they were colorful & tasty & reminiscent of those fireball jawbreakers. Try them!

For the icing
Make the cake mix as directed but replace the water required with Fireball whiskey & then add a tablespoon or two of red food coloring.
Bake as directed. Cool the cupcakes.
Add a TBS or two (or more if you like) of Fireball whiskey to the frosting.
