Beer Mug Cupcakes with Baileys® Filling

  • Prep 60min
  • Total1hr45min
  • Servings10



  • 1 box (15.25 oz) chocolate cake mix
  • 1 1/8 cups water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs

Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Ganache

  • 5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Baileys™ Irish Cream

Beer Mug Wrappers and Foam

  • 30 ounces white modeling chocolate
  • Golden yellow gel or paste food coloring
  • 1 tub (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed


  • 1

    Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Make cake mix using water, oil and eggs according to package instructions.

  • 2

    Spray Mason jars with non-stick cooking spray, then set on a baking sheet. Equally divide batter among jars. Bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cake comes out clean. Cool cakes for 10 minutes. Turn jars upside down and remove cakes. If they stick, run a knife around the edges. Cool completely.
  • 3

    Make Baileys® Irish Cream ganache: Pour chopped chocolate, heaving whipping cream and powdered sugar into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high power for 30 seconds. Let bowl sit in microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and stir until smooth. If all chocolate is not melted, heat for 10 second increments, stirring after each. Stir in Baileys® Irish Cream.
  • 4

    Cut each cake to be 3 inches tall. Then, using a cupcake plunger, apple corer or knife, create a well in each cake. Pour Baileys® Irish Cream ganache into each well.
  • 5

    Color 20 ounces of white modeling chocolate golden yellow with food coloring. Roll out yellow modeling chocolate to about 1/8 inch thickness on a non-stick mat (or on a cutting board that has been lightly dusted with powdered sugar). Cut 3 1/4 inch wide by 8-inch long strips.
  • 6

    Press wooden dowel at 1/2 inch intervals across each strip, creating the indentations in the beer mugs and leaving a 1/2 inch border along one edge. That will be the bottom of each beer mug.
  • 7

    Wrap one yellow strip around each cake, cutting the seams to match up. Brush seam edges with water or melted white chocolate and press together. To make the handles, pinch off pieces of white modeling chocolate and roll into mug handles. Attach with water or melted white chocolate.
  • 8

    Just before serving, spoon whipped topping into mugs.

    Learn how to make a single-serving chocolate Guinness cake in a mug! This is an easy microwave cake recipe that is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.

    I’ve been wanting to make a chocolate stout mug cake. With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, these are a perfect treat.

    I even got the idea to cook these in beer mugs, and I’m pretty happy with how they came out. I do wish there were beer mugs that aren’t clear glass though because I don’t particularly like how you can see the cooked cake sticking to the inside of the mugs. I tried washing the mugs after cooking the cakes and placing them back. Not sure which look I like better.

    Much of the beer disappears when the cake cooks and you don’t really taste it. But what remains is the nuttiness of the stout, which goes great with the chocolate.

    Originally I wanted to share a beer mug cake for Father’s Day, but I wasn’t able to edit the footage in time!

    Luckily, beer never goes out of style, and this cake is also perfect for summertime bbqs / cook outs!

    The ultimate summer cake idea - a beer mug cake!!

    Adding Beer Into This Cake Recipe

    I couldn’t resist using some beer in the actual cake recipe. It felt wrong making the cake layers without it. Plus, now it’s truly a beer cake recipe!!

    I swapped out some of the buttermilk for beer in my go-to vanilla layer cake recipe, and frosted the cake with a vanilla buttercream. It’s almost like a cream ale, right?! 

    The fun part is that you can use your favorite beer. I used a Founders All-Day IPA, but the options are really limitless.

    I’d love to hear what your favorite beer is, and what types you’ve used in this recipe!

    Beer Frosting??

    When I began to think about adding beer to the cake layers, my brain naturally progressed to day dreaming about a beer buttercream.

    Originally I did plan to use a beer flavored frosting on this cake. I figured if I could cook down the beer a bit, I could incorporate it into my buttercream recipe.

    But that idea quickly faded as I tried to make an IPA reduction. While the concept seemed great in my mind, the smell of the reduction told me otherwise!!

    Smoothing the sides of my beer mug cake

    Instead, I chose to color the frosting into what I decided was a “beer-colored” frosting.

    I used a combination of brown and yellow gel food coloring to create this tan shade.

    It Isn’t A Beer Mug Without A Handle

    While I generally don’t work with fondant and gum paste, it’s hard to avoid with this beer mug cake design.

    Without a handle, it’s really a beer glass cake. And that just doesn’t have the same ring to it!!

    adding the handle to my beer mug cake

    Be sure you make the handle for this cake at least a few hours in advance.

    This will give it time to try, and make it easier to insert onto the side of your cake. If it’s still soft, it can crack or break.

    A Foamy Finishing Touch

    The finishing touch on this cake is the buttercream foam piped on top! It’s ironic, because in real life you don’t want a ton of foam on top of your beer.

    Piping bubbles onto my beer mug cake

    However, I love the cartoonish look that the piped foam gives this cake. It makes it feel like it’s right out of an episode of the Simpsons!!

    I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the rest of the IPA while decorating this cake! As a huge beer fan myself, I had way too much fun decorating this cake.

    Beer Cake Recipe

    • 3 cups all-purpose flour (390 grams)
    • 3 cups granulated sugar (600 grams)
    • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder (10 grams)
    • 1 tsp salt (6 grams)
    • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature (226 grams) - 2 sticks
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract (8 grams)
    • 1 cup pasteurized egg whites from a carton (or about 7 egg whites) (235 grams)
    • 1 cup buttermilk, room temperature (237 grams)
    • 1/2 cup your favorite beer (about 120 grams)
    • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil (28 grams)
    • Yellow and brown gel food coloring (if desired)

    Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

    • 2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature (434 grams)
    • 8 cups powdered sugar (907 grams)
    • 1/2 tsp salt (3 grams)
    • 2 Tbsp heavy cream (or whipping cream) (30 grams)
    • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract (12 grams)
    • Yellow and brown gel food coloring

    Additional Decorations

    • 1 cup white gum paste
    • 2 toothpicks


    Beer Handle Decoration:

    1. Prepare the beer handle the night before so that it can dry! To accelerate the drying process, use either white gum paste or fondant with tylose powder.
    2. Mold the handle to be roughly 6 inches tall, and insert toothpicks into the tips of the handle. Set aside to fully firm up overnight.

    Beer Cake Layers:

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line six, 6-inch pans with parchment rounds, and grease with non-stick cooking spray.
    2. Mix together all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt) in a stand mixer with a paddle until fully combined.
    3. Mix chunks of room-temperature butter slowly into the dry mix, on a low speed. Continue to mix until no large chunks of butter remain, and the mixture becomes crumbly.
    4. Pour in egg whites, and mix on low until just incorporated. Mix in the buttermilk, then the beer, on a low speed.
    5. Add in vanilla and oil, and mix at a low speed until fully incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, then beat on low speed for about 15 seconds. 
    6. Divide batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. I like to use a digital kitchen scale to weigh my pans, and ensure they all have the same amount of batter. This guarantees your layers will bake to be the same height.
    7. Bake for 30-32 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the pans to cool for 10 minutes, then run an offset spatula around perimeter of the pan to separate the cake from the pan.
    8. Place cake layers into the freezer for 30 minutes, to accelerate the cooling process.Once the layers are fully cooled, carefully flip the pans and remove the layers from the pans.
    9. Use a serrated knife to level the tops of the layers, and then frost as desired.

    Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:

    1. While the cake layers bake and cool, make the vanilla buttercream frosting.
    2. Beat the butter on a medium speed for 30 seconds with a paddle attachment, until smooth. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Alternate with small splashes of cream.
    3. Once fully mixed, add in the vanilla and salt, and beat on low until the ingredients are fully incorporated, and the desired consistency is reached. 
    4. If the frosting is too thick, add in additional cream (1 teaspoon at a time). If the frosting is too thin, add in more powdered sugar (quarter of a cup at a time).
    5. Place two cups of white buttercream into a large piping bag, and cut a small opening (about 1 cm wide)
    6. Color the remaining buttercream a tan color using a couple drops of yellow gel food coloring, and a tiny drop of brown gel food coloring. Start off with only a tiny bit of food coloring, and add more as needed until you reach the desired color.

    To Assemble The Cake:

    1. Stack and frost cake layers on a greaseproof cake board, using a dab of frosting to help stick the first cake layer to the board.
    2. Add an even layer of tan buttercream between each cake layer.
    3. If your layers seem unstable, insert a wooden dowel through the center of the cake for stability while you crumb coat.
    4. Cover the cake in a thin coat of frosting, to fully seal off the cake layers. Smooth using a bench scraper, then chill the cake in the fridge (30 minutes) or freezer (5 minutes) until the frosting is firm to the touch.
    5. Add a second, thicker layer of frosting to the cake. Pipe a line of white buttercream around the base of the cake, then covered the rest of the cake with the tan buttercream. Smooth using a bench scraper.
    6. Use the bench scraper to make vertical lines up the cake, to look like the indentations on a beer mug.
    7. Pipe some foam on top of the cake, and over some of the sides using the white buttercream.
    8. Insert the beer mug handle, and enjoy!


    These cake layers can be made in advance!! Learn more about how far in advance they can be made, and how to properly wrap them in my post on how to make cake layers ahead of time.

    Since this frosting will be used to decorate a cake, it is important to mix the buttercream on the lowest speed at the end of the process for a couple minutes, to get out any extra air that might have be incorporated during the mixing process.

    You can also stir the frosting in a bowl with a rubber spatula, pushing it from side to side, to get rid of any air bubbles.This will make it easier to get super smooth sides on your cake!
