An easy, delicious Bailey’s white cake with chocolate Bailey’s frosting



For the cake

  • 1 box of white cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of Bailey’s
  • 3/4 cup of milk

For the Frosting

  • 2 pounds of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup of boiling water
  • 1/3 cup of Bailey’s
  • 2 sticks of room temperature butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl using an electric mixer beat, together the eggs, milk, butter, and Bailey’s for the cake. When the wet ingredients are combined, slowly pour in the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated, pouring into two greased 8 inch round pans. Bake cakes until set for approximately 24-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. When cake is done, let cool. Then remove from pan prior to frosting.
  2. To make the frosting, sift together the cocoa powder and the confectioners sugar into a large bowl. Add the butter and mix with an electric mixer until incorporated. Add the boiling water and Bailey’s and beat until smooth.
  3. To assemble the cake, place one layer on a cake dish. Frost the cake by spreading the frosting evenly over the top of the cake and down the sides. Place the second layer on top of the first and frost the top, spreading it down the sides, using frosting to cover any gap between layers. Slice and enjoy.


If you don’t love a heavily frosted cake, you may have frosting left over.
