Increase speed to medium and beat 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched in center. Cool on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans and cool completely. To make frosting, beat butter in a large bowl with electric mixer until smooth. Beat in sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in Irish cream liquor and vanilla. Slowly beat in heavy cream and beat until light and fluffy. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate, spread 3/4 cup frosting over top of cake.
