Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 12 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups butter, at room temperature
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons Baileys caramel irish cream


  1. Using a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the eggs and yolks in a large bowl on high speed for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the water and sugar; simmer until it reaches the soft ball stage, registering between 234 and 240F on a candy thermometer.
  3. Immediately transfer the syrup to a large heatproof liquid measuring cup. In a slow, thin stream, add the sugar mixture to the egg mixture., mixing on low speed the entire time.
  4. Increase the speed to medium and beat about 7 minutes, until the syrup has cooled. Add the butter, half a stick at a time, beating on medium after each addition.
  5. Once all of the butter has been added, beat on medium speed until the frosting thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir in the salt and Irish Cream.
