For the cupcake

Heat oven to 350°F.

Place a paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.

In a large bowl, beat all cupcake ingredients with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds.

Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.

Divide batter among muffin cups.

Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool 10 minutes; remove cupcakes from pans to cooling racks.

Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

For the buttercream frosting

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat butter, melted chocolate and 1/4 cup coffee-flavored liqueur with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended.

Gradually add 4 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating on low speed until frosting is smooth and creamy.

Spoon frosting into decorating bag; refrigerate until ready to use.

For the whipped cream

In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream, 1 cup powdered sugar and the Irish cream liqueur with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Spoon whipped cream into second decorating bag; refrigerate until ready to use.

Cut tips off decorating bags; place both bags in a larger decorating bag fitted with a star tip.

Squeeze bag to pipe frosting and whipped cream together on cupcakes.

Sprinkle with chocolate shavings.

Store in refrigerator.
