I made these cupcakes for a friend's birthday which is the day before St. Patrick's Day. I made the cupcakes exactly as written with modifications for our high altitude (over 5,000 ft.).
The cupcakes were fantastic! The only thing that I might have done differently would be to increase the filling and frosting as I ran out of it before I had filled all of the cupcakes.
I used the correct alcoholic mixture as well. FYI you can but small miniatures for the filling and frosting. Which is what I did. I also used good quality chocolate and cocoa for the recipe.
These may take a while to make, but they are truly awesome and worth all of the time involved.
I also used my Wilton cupcake corer for the first time, which may be why I needed extra filling. The corer, once I figured it out, made it easy to take out the extra cupcake material in the middle.
I used the cupcake cores to make my Grandma Scherer's "cake". She could never get any cake to come out of the pan, so she would crumble it up and fold it into whipped cream along with some fruit. I did the same with my middles adding dried cherries.
