    1. Thank you so much, I can promise you most of the cupcakes that come through my kitchen are not this fancy, but I thought since they were champagne cupcakes they needed to be “fancy-ed) up a bit. 😉 Thanks for visiting!!

  1. Nicole, these look heavenly! I think they would go very nicely with the Biltmore Pas de Deux. It’s great paired with sweets!.
    Cheers & A Happy Valentines Day to you and your Lovies!

    1. Eileen, I’ve never tried the Biltmore Pas de Deux, but now you have my curiosity peaked and I will have to try to find some.
      I love knowing what goes well with what, so I’m happy to have met you!! 🙂
      Hope you have a great week ahead!

  2. You had me at “pink champagne” and “cupcake.” I seriously need to make this frosting and of course lick the bowl at the end. My fave part of making anything delicious

    1. Isn’t that the most intriguing combination Grace?
      The cupcakes are good, but what really makes them special is definitely the frosting – there is no doubt about that – a very light strawberry and champagne flavor that is surprisingly delicate and my kids love. I wonder what that means for my future? 😉

  3. These look delicious! I would love to make a cake with this recipe. Do you happen to know what size cake this recipe would make? Thank you!

    1. I unfortunately do not – as I have only made them into cupcakes. Maybe someone else who has made them can chime in – maybe they tried to make them into a cake. I would imagine about an 8″ or 9″ if I was taking my best guess.

  4. I usually do not care for cake but when my granddaughter made these we practically fought over them. They were wonderful! Make the extra frosting, because it goes so well with the cake, you will want to heap it on.

  5. I seen this on my twitter feed and just had to come over and peek at this recipe. It is a must save! Thanks for sharing that. I will give it a try.


  6. I like everything you said above. Building a community is so important. You have outlined how important an “affiliate” on your blog is. I find that it creates great success with people on your list.
    Thanks for the great tips,

    1. Hi Karla,
      2/3 cup of butter. Sorry, when switching from one recipe plugin to another it looks like it didn’t convert properly. I’m so glad you asked! Enjoy the cupcakes!

    1. You could definitely try that, however, I am not sure the frosting would set properly. It would be too much liquid, although you could experiment to get the right consistency. Good luck!
