Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out without batter on it (a few fudgy crumbs are ok). Cool completely.

Irish Cream Frosting

  1. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat butter and powdered sugar until combined. Add Irish cream and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for a minute or two, until smooth and creamy.
