Pink champagne cupcakes are my favorite cupcakes both to make and to eat. Not a big surprise given my love for champagne. These are so pretty in pale pink, although they can be made in any color, and perfect for a baby shower, bridal shower or really any reason.
A few tips:
1. Use a champagne you like to drink! It doesn’t have to be an expensive bottle, but do not go super cheap and use something like Cook’s. I use Domain Chandon Brut.
2. Instead of using liquid red food coloring (per the recipe), use “no taste red” icing color made by Wilton. The liquid red food coloring has a bitter taste.
3. Add any decorations on top right after icing the cupcakes because the decorations will not stick once the icing has crusted.
4. If you want to use a different frosting, go ahead and use your favorite recipe and just replace the liquid in the recipe with champagne.
