Champagne and Sprinkles Cupcakes

First off – Happy Birthday to one of my besties Lindsey! What a great way to celebrate – champagne & cupcakes!!

Champagne and Sprinkles Cupcakes

These cupcakes are so good that if you are not a big icing fan (like John) they taste just as good without the icing. But how can you say no to icing when they are this pretty in pink?

Champagne Cupcakes

I came up with the recipe for these because  it was the One Year Anniversary of Bakin’ Friends. The secret ingredient for the month was Sprinkles. So I thought champagne is a great way to celebrate and why not add white sprinkles to the batter & icing?!

Champagne and Sprinkles Cupcakes

Ingredients

Batter:

  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup champagne
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles

Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup champagne
  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • Red food coloring
  • Sprinkles about 1 tablespoon
  • Edible Pearls for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a stand mixer, whisk together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in above dry ingredients (will turn into a thick mixture).
  • Add in vanilla, champagne, sprinkles, and milk. Then add in egg whites - one at a time. Stir until well combined.
  • Fill cupcake liners to 3/4 full. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees. Bake for 25 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.
  • Once done, allow cupcakes to cool completely before icing.

Frosting:

  • While cupcakes are baking, beat together butter and shortening until creamy. Add in vanilla and champagne. Then add sugar 1c. at a time. Add 1-2 tsp. of food coloring. Fold in sprinkles.
  • Pipe on cooled cupcakes. If frosting is too dry add a few Tbsp. of milk, if too wet add a little more powdered sugar.
