here i sit. it’s not 5 o’clock and i’ve polished off the last of the open bottle of champagne, painted my nails with sparkly polish, and eaten too many champagne cupcakes.
and it feels good.
like i was meant to do this.
but more importantly – everyone needs to make these goddamn cupcakes.
i’m no professional and my process is the worst – where i destroy everything in my path until my end goal.
but they were perfection.
the champagne i’ve been drinking all afternoon was mediocre. but it looked lonely – like it needed someone to drink it. so i did.
here’s the recipe for those delicious fucking cupcakes. oh, and here’s the link – so you can see how they were actually supposed to look.
1 box betty crocker super moist white cake mix
1 1/4 c. champagne
1/3 c. vegetable oil
3 egg whites
4-5 drops of red/pink food coloring
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
4 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. champagne
1 tsp. vanilla
4-5 drops red or pink food coloring
heat oven to 350. place baking cup in each of 24 regular muffin cups. in a large bowl, mix dry cake mix and champagne. add oil, egg whites, and food coloring. beat with electric mixer on medium speed. divide evenly among the muffin cups. bake for 17-22 minutes. cool completely. in a medium bowl, beat frosting ingredients with a mixer until smooth. frost cupcakes. sprinkle with garnishes!
