Champagne Cupcakes

When I think of Champagne Cupcakes, I think of Champagne AND Cupcakes, so I was excited to put the two together and see how they would taste. I found the recipe here.

 

I used regular and mini sized cupcake pans, and let me tell you the mini size was a hit! The color, the size, and the presentation drew my cupcake tasters in like flies!

 

The Frosting:

The frosting was a champagne buttercream frosting, which tasted a lot like butter to me. As a compliment to the cake, it actually worked out and everyone seemed to love it.

 

My favorite part, and my own ingenious idea, was finishing off the cupcakes with POP ROCKS! They popped in your mouth as you bit in and really gave that effect of some bubbly champagne. 

 

The Cupcake:

The batter smelled like champagne but after it baked into the cupcake, the flavor baked off as well. I have heard some recommendations for using champagne flavoring that you can purchase at specialty baking shops, maybe next time.

 

My cupcake tasters were confused about what the flavor actually was, even after I had told them that they were champagne cupcakes.. hmm.

 

Overall Review:

Everyone really loved these little guys. I am not sure if it was because they were so small, or because they were pink, or because of the pop rocks. Whatever it was, perhaps the combination, had everyone in agreement that they liked these the best!

 

I personally liked them, not loved them. I did think the presentation really helped, but I would have loved a truly champagne tasting cupcake. Maybe next time I will try strawberry champagne to put a little more sweet into it.

    <p>Choose from sweater dresses, mini dresses, midi dresses, wrap <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutlet-2014.com/" title="coach factory">coach factory outlet</a>, bodysuits and more.I realize that the phrase ‘go big or go home' pretty much sums Paul up. However, I've been wanting a cute <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutlet-purse.com/" title="coach factory outlet">coach outlet</a> to wear on sweatshirt and <a href="http://www.coachstoreonline.com/" title="coach outlet store online">coach outlet store online</a> days. I pretty much exclusively wear <a href="http://www.coachoutletstoreonline2014.com/" title="coach outlet store online">coach outlet store online</a> bags, so I want them to look great with them. They have glitter, they have <a href="http://www.fitflopdesign.com/" title="fitflops">fitflops</a>, and just when you think they're done, they turn around and flash you that hot <a href="http://www.michael-kors-outlet-store.com/" title="michael kors outlet">michael kors outlet store</a>! So cute.enture is a four-inch ring made of durable <a href="http://www.fitflopflip-flop.com/" title="flip flops">fitflop shoes</a>. It won't warp or scratch and it'll help you keep track of all of your <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutlethandbags.com/" title="coach factory handbags outlet">coach factory outlet</a> (and all of your not-so-needed keys!).But obviously we're talking about night here. <a href="http://www.coach-factory-outlet-online.com/" title="coach factory">coach factory outlet online</a>, to be exact, and you want to look flawless/breathtaking/perfect/insert exceptionally flattering <a href="http://www.coachhandbagsnew2014.com/" title="coach handbags">coach handbags outlet</a> here. </p>
    <p>Create your own opportunity! Listen people, we really need to get our heads around the fact that times have changed and we don't need to wait for <a href="http://www.pradaoutlet-store.com/" title="prada outlet">prada outlet</a>. So let's get cracking, shall we?I have a <a href="http://www.michaelkorsoutletmkstore.com/" title="michael kors outlet">michael kors outlet</a> intarsia knitwear, they're always so wonderful.A former interior designer, <a href="http://www.ukfitflops.com/" title="fitflop">fitflop shoes</a> founded his company, WilliamVintage, in 2009, pursuing his personal passion for vintage fashion.According to The Cut, you can only smoke hemp and legal herbs with Miley's papers;Getting dressed up just to roam the streets during <a href="http://www.fitflopsflipflops.com/" title="flip flops">fitflops</a> with no purpose other than the hope of getting your photo snapped?!so at least there's that? If I have a little extra time, I'll make a few gift bags at once, so that next time I'll be sure to have one or two at the ready.But don't worry if you didn't get them for free, you can also buy the commemorative papers when you go see Miley on tour.</p>
    <p>While you check out the <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutlet-2014.com/" title="www.coachfactory.com/store">www.coachfactory.com/store</a> options that are sure to find a home in your closet and listen to Sarah Jessica take pride in the quality of the line, here's something else to fantasize about:The episode aired last night, but was taped on Feb. 26, just one day before Hoffman was memorialized and only three days after Hoffman was found dead in his West Village store.</p>
