Let's face it. The last two years have been insanely challenging for everyone on this planet, and just as we think things are getting better, something happens that causes us to take two steps backward. it's a very difficult time for us all, and as grim as times may seem, we can all use something to lift our spirits, like cupcakes! Cupcakes are the best dessert ever invented. There, I said it. Cupcakes are mini cakes with the best frosting, endless possibilities of flavor combinations, and are just so dainty and cute. They make for great alternatives to wedding cakes, birthday presents, get well gestures, and so much more. With the new year just around the corner, it was only fitting to make cupcakes, but add champagne (or Prosecco, because I am OBSESSED with Prosecco).
Champagne cupcakes add a beautiful aroma and flavor profile of bright and a slight citrus flavor to the batter, and topped with delicious icing these are literally worth every calorie. Sadly, I was not able to muster up any homemade buttercream or icing, as I ran out of confectioner's sugar and my butter was still pretty hard, so I opted for good ol' Betty Crocker and it was damn delicious. Nevertheless, these moist, fluffy champagne cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate the end of some of the craziest years in our lifetimes.
What more can I say about these champagne cupcakes other than you MUST make them. I made a batch and froze half without any icing so that when I am in the mood to celebrate anything, I have the perfect dessert to do so with. I know right now can be very frustrating, saddening, and depressing, but let's continue to stand together and help welcome in the new year with a hopeful and optimistic outlook. Cheers to us!
Celebrate New Years, or any occasion, with these absolutely delicious champagne cupcakes. Moist, fluffy, and very easy to make, these champagne cupcakes are the perfect dessert for your NYE gatherings or toasting to good things ahead, and there is nothing wrong with that!
