Add vanilla and 2 tablespoons of the liqueur; beat until blended. Add enough of the remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons liqueur, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating until frosting is light and fluffy.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you are using 2 (12-cup) muffin pans and baking all the cupcakes at one time, rotate the pans halfway through the baking time to ensure even baking.

Don’t have a decorating bag? Simply spoon the frosting into a large resealable food-storage plastic bag and cut off a corner of the bag to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.
