What could be more perfect than champagne cupcakes?! For all you fun lovers out there, this recipe is definitely worth trying. Here's what you'll need:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sparkling wine
Champagne Buttercream Frosting:
3-3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-4 tablespoons sparkling wine
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cupcake pan with paper or foil liners
In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter together until light and fluffy
Add your 2 eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Then add vanilla
In a separate bowl, combine all your dry ingredients:
flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and set aside
Now comes the fun part =)
In a small bowl, mix sour cream and champagne together
I substituted my sour cream with buttermilk and butter, worked out great
Alternate adding dry mixture and champagne mixture beginning and ending with the dry.
You'll get a nice looking batter like above!
To make these champagne cupcakes extra special, I used these adorable cupcake liners given to me by a friend. You peel the liner off the cupcake as if they are petals on a flower, very cute!
Getting ready to pop them in the oven...
Here it is! Light, fluffy, a little sweetness from the champagne
I found it a little difficult to frost the cupcake using these cupcake liners,
being that my piping techniques are not the best!
If you have that problem too,carefully spread icing with a butter knife
All ready for the party!
As you can see, I am still obsessed with the edible glitter hearts I bought from Michael's
They really just add something extra and cute!
Hope you guys had a great weekend and enjoyed this post! Will be back soon with more fun stuff! xo
