champagne cupcakes

Yesterday I made cupcakes.


Not just any old ordinary cupcakes.  These ones were inspired by the #flavourofthemonth - bubbles.  Yep that's right - Champagne cupcakes. 


I did cheat a little bit though.... I didn't quite make them from scratch.  I used a Betty Crocker recipe you can find here.  It was pretty easy and there is more than enough champagne in a bottle to make the cupcakes, the frosting and have a glass or two while they are baking ;-)


I'm surprised it's taken me this long to realise that I can incorporate champagne into dessert, not just as dessert.  Guess I'll be baking more cake now.  I wonder if this will work with rose.....

Cheers
