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.
1 box yellow or white cake mix
1/3 cup oil
1 1/4 cups champagne
frosting (recipe below)
festive sprinkles – I like silver, white or gold
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking pan with cups. Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Fill cups with batter 2.3 full. Bake 17-19 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool and frost with champagne buttercream icing (recipe below).
Champagne Buttercream Icing
4 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter (1/2 cup), softened
4 -5 tablespoons champagne
Cream butter, add powdered sugar gradually using a mixer. Pipe in decorator tube or use a knife to frost.
