Easy tutorial on how to make Champagne cupcakes. Made seriously easy with the help of a boxed cake mix. Cheers!
Champagne cupcakes are a great way to ring in the new year. These cupcakes are quite easy as they start from a boxed mix. This time of the year I am too busy to make them from scratch so I just played around by adding champagne to the mix and frosting. I finally got a formula I liked.
The flavor is subtle and sweet making a tasty cupcake. Next year, besides exercising more and discovering new books, I resolve to make more cupcakes LOL.
Champagne cupcakes are great for weddings, engagement parties and New Years Eve celebrations.
