Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes

I'm getting ready for company this afternoon and wanted to make something yummy for dessert, so I decided on these cupcakes. These are definitely not cupcakes you could pass out to the neighborhood kids. ;)
I like the fact that they are not super sweet and have that champagne taste in the background of the sweetness. Just to make them a little more grown up, there are edible pearls on the top with the pink colored sugar!

Strawberry Champagne Cupcake Recipe:

1 box Betty Crocker Strawbery Cake Mix
1 1/4 cups Andre Pink Champagne
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 egg whites

Champagne Frosting:
1/2 cup softened butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Andre Pink Champagne
1 tsp vanilla
5-6 drops red food coloring

Garnish:
Pink decorator sugar
Edible pearls

Directions:
Heat oven to 350. Place paper baking cups into muffin tins. In a large bowl combine cake mix and champagne. Add oil and egg whites. Beat with mixer on med speed for 2 minutes. Divide batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake 17-22 min. or until toothpick inserted in center, comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

For Frosting:In a med. bowl beat frosting ingredients with mixer on med speed until smooth. Frost Cupcakes and sprinkle with pink sugar and pearls.

  1. They were so good Adia. They definitely had a champagne taste, but that helped cut the sweet of the cupcake.
