Easy Champagne Cupcakes

 

What a better way to celebrate New Years Eve than with Champagne Cupcakes!  This is such a busy time of year, so this recipe starts off with a boxed white cake mix to save on time!  This will make approximately 24 cupcakes!

For the cupcakes, you will need:

-1 box white cake mix

-1 1/4 cups champagne

-3 egg whites

-1/3 cup vegetable oil

For the Champagne Frosting, you will need:

-4 cups powdered sugar

-1/4 cup champagne

-1 teaspoon vanilla

-1/2 cup butter, softened

Use these items from your December box:

-Gold Cupcake Pics

-Black and Gold Sanding Sugar

-Paper straws

-Star Sugars

-Black and Gold cupcake liners

Directions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a muffin tin with black and gold liners.  In a large bowl, mix cake mix and champagne till moist.  Add egg whites and oil.  With an electric mixer, beat on medium for about 2 minutes.  Fill muffin cups with batter till they are about 2/3 full.  Bake 18-20 minutes, cupcakes are done when a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.  Let cool about 10 minutes before removing from pan to cool completely.  While cupcakes are cooling, in a medium bowl add softened butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and champagne.  Beat on medium until all mixed and it is a smooth consistency.

To decorate cupcakes, frost cupcakes or pipe with a tip.  There are so many ways to decorate your cupcakes, we included a few pictures of ideas below.  You can sprinkle with sanding sugars, or roll in the sugar.  Add a cupcake pic, or edible star decorations!  You can even cut your straws and use those to decorate!

Try making Pink Champagne Cupcakes!  Add a couple of drops of red food coloring to the cake mix, and a couple of drops to the frosting!  Sprinkle with gold sanding sugar!  You can even add black food coloring the frosting to make black frosting!

Want to make an alcohol free version, use Ginger Ale instead of the Champagne!
