    In a jug, swirl together the Baileys Irish Cream and espresso shots.
    Use a cookie cutter to cut out a round piece of your cake and pop this into a glass – use a champagne glass if you want to be extra fancy!
    Add a scoop of ice cream on top of the cake – vanilla is the classic, but you can use any flavour of ice cream you like.
    Finally, pour your beautifully swirled Baileys and espresso mixture over the top. That's it. Now time to dig in!
