Pink Champagne Cupcakes

| | ,

Baking Junkie opened the Booze Cakes book and decided to give this pink champagne cupcake recipe a try. These are the perfect Valentine’s Day cupcake for your significant other.

“These were the first cupcakes I made from Booze Cakes and wow, they were strong! I cut the champagne in the recipe in half, but I think I could have decreased it even more. I was a little worried, but I liked the finished product more than I thought I was going to. While these weren’t my personal favorite, a co-worker declared them the best thing I’ve ever made. I think if you are a lover of champagne these would be the perfect Valentine’s Day treat to whip up for you and your sweetie. Enjoy!”
