Fireball Cupcakes

Great balls of fire!


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 c. Fireball whisky, divided
  • 1 c. (two sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 c. powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • red and yellow food coloring
  • Hot tamales, for decoration
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix and cinnamon, then stir in vegetable oil, eggs, and 1 cup Fireball. Bake according to package directions. Let cool completely before frosting.
  3. Make Fireball frosting: In a large bowl, combine butter, half the powdered sugar, vanilla , salt, and remaining 1/4 cup Fireball.
  4. Using a hand mixer, beat until smooth. Add the remaining 2 cups powdered sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  5. Gently stir in yellow food coloring, then red, being careful not to overmix (you want it to be streaky).
  6. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes and garnish with one Hot Tamale each.
