Happy birthday to me (cha cha cha)

To celebrate my birthday, which was a month ago, I wanted to bake about 3 cakes and 2 desserts. From there I narrowed it down to one type of cupcake, one inspired by an alcoholic drink, sort of like the car bomb cupcake. I’d been toying with the idea of making a cake with incorporating the flavors of a buttery nipple shooter, which is made with butterscotch schnapps and Baileys. I found a triple butterscotch cupcake recipe a while ago and figured I could just replace the butterscotch frosting with a Baileys buttercream, which is included in the car bomb cupcake. Though the cupcake itself didn’t include schnapps in the recipe, I figured a naturally butterscotch flavored cake would be sufficient.
