Bad Girl Cupcakes!!!

I am literally the happiest girl EVER about these cupcakes. Hi, I'm a drunk bitch and need to see a counselor, but AFTER my cupcakes! (And this bottle of Vodka) So I was at this Gallery opening and came across the most amazing thing I've ever eaten in my existence as a bad girl. Cupcakes cooked with LIQUOR!!!! Are you not dying right now?! Oh my g! Sooooo I got the recipe for you bitches!!!!!! Pot Brownies are so last season. #weoffthat
Cosmo Cupcakes!!!!

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons of TRIPLE SEC
1 1/4 cups milk (preferably whole)

Preheat the oven to 375°. Line two cupcake pans with paper liners and set aside. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy, about three minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then beat in the vanilla extract and TRIPLE SEC.

Add one-third of the flour mixture and beat to combine. Add half of the milk and beat to combine. Add another third of the flour, then the remaining milk, then the rest of the flour, beating to combine after each addition.

Divide the batter between the liners, filling each about 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the cupcakes are golden-brown and spring back when pressed lightly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, then frost with Simple Buttercream Frosting.

Simple Buttercream Frosting
Makes enough frosting for 24 cupcakes

1 3/4 sticks unsalted butter, softened
6 to 8 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 cup milk (preferably whole)
Dash of red food coloring
Garnish with lime zest

In a large bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Add 6 cups of confectioners’ sugar, the vanilla, the LIQUOR and the milk. Beat on low speed until creamy. Gradually add the remaining confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, until the frosting is thick and creamy.

I expect to be invited over for the bad girl cupcakes!!!!!!! I'm gonna find a recipe for Patron... omg, how fucking amazing would those be. Get to baking bitches!
