Why is this a Foodgasm?What happens when an Irish Car Bomb becomes a cupcake? What's more, it happens to be amazingly decedent and low fat? A new Foodgasm has been born! This is it: sinfully smooth red velvet cake with Guinness undertones topped with Irish Cream frosting. Perfect for any boyfriend, husband or gourmet cupcake lover, this little guy is sure to please! This is quick and easy to make and you can really taste the Guinness and Irish Cream Flavors! Why not combine my love for a good beer with my food!
So as you can tell I have been slightly obsessed with cooking with beer lately, namely Guinness. I made Guinness Beef Stew, then I even made some low fat kielbasa with beer and kraut. I have been experimenting and browsing blogs for some ahhhhmazing beer ideas. Even came across Guinness Brownies on Hall Nesting! The possibilities are endless! Who knows what will come next...any ideas on more food beer combos? What would you like to see from me?
What you need

1 can Guinness (the can is best, it has some nitrogen to give it a creamy texture)
3 egg whites
24 cupcake wrappers
Frosting3 tablespoons butter (room temperature)
3 tablespoons light butter spread (I used smart balance)
3 1/4 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons Irish Cream (I used Molly's, it's cheaper and just as good)
