1 chocolate cake box mix that calls for water (I used Pamela's Chocolate Cake mix)
1 container of pre-made buttercream frosting
Bourbon, rum or brandy

Vegan Option:
1 vegan chocolate cake box mix that calls for water
1/2 batch of Vegan Bourbon Maple Cream Cheese
Bourbon, rum or brandy

Make the cake mix according to the package instructions, BUT substitute booze for half to all of the water. Bake as cupcakes.

Non-Vegan: Dump the buttercream in a bowl and hand stir in 1/2-3/4 cup of booze. Allow to sit in the refrigerator or overnight (not necessary of you're having a really bad day).

Pipe the buttercream or bourbon maple cream cheese onto the cooled cupcakes (or spread the frosting on a warm cupcake with a butter knife if you're having a really bad day- function over form).

*Optional: Top with seasonal sprinkles and a freshly-toasted pecan.

If making gluten-free, be sure to check the ingredients on the frosting!
