Easy Champagne Cupcakes
These Easy Champagne Cupcakes really look the part! They are simple to make too as you simply use a box of your favorite white cake mix to prepare them. And how decadent to replace the water for the cake mix with champagne! If your cake mix calls for ⅔ cup water, use ⅔ cup of champagne instead! These are perfect party cupcakes for your New Year’s Eve.
Start by preparing and baking the cake mix according to the directions on the package, substituting water for champagne. While the cupcakes cool, prepare the frosting by beating butter with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the champagne, starting with just a little and adding more if you prefer a stronger flavor. Add the powdered sugar, and mix until the frosting tastes good to you. Place the frosting in a large piping bag fit with a wilton 1M piping tip. Pipe buttercream swirls onto the cupcakes, starting in the center of the cupcake, swirling out, and then swirling back into the center, progressively stacking the frosting as you get to the center. Top with gold sprinkles and a celebratory cupcake topper if you have one!
