Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

Ok, i've already posted on this particular recipe (Superbowl 2011), but I had to make it again recently, this time for a "Boozy Treats" theme for the baking club at work. The cupcakes feature a trio of Irish drinks: Guinness (for the cake), Whiskey (for the chocolate ganache "bomb") and Bailey's for the buttercream frosting. I decided to try making pint glasses out of fondant, with a Guinness logo. The pint glasses were easy to make, I simply tinted the fondant a rich brown and cut into the shape of a Guinness pint glass. To create the head, I just topped them off with frosting using a pastry bag with a round decorating tip. I cut the harp out of fondant and added detail using black frosting. These would be great for St. Patrick's day next year.
