Don’t over mix your batter - The ingredients only need to be combined for this recipe. Over mixing your batter can cause the cupcakes to be too dense.
Only ice cupcakes that have cooled down completely! - As tempting as it may be to decorate your cupcakes right away, it will be worth it to wait until these Baileys infused cupcakes have cooled down completely.
Check if they are cooked! - Use a toothpick inserted in the middle of the almond cupcakes to ensure that they have cooked through.
Don’t worry if the mixture is very thick, the cupcakes will still bake well. My batter was extremely thick because my kitchen was so cold and the coconut oil hardened!
