Champagne Party Cupcakes

3/15/2012





My boss gifted me with the book Intoxicated Cupcakes a few months ago, and I had been waiting for an occasion to break out the booze and electric mixer ever since. A birthday at work proved to be the perfect occasion so one Sunday afternoon I sipped champagne while making these beauties. I didn't have food coloring so swapped pink icing for white and put colored sprinkles inside the cupcakes and champagne-colored sprinkles on top. Festive, no?

The icing on the cupcake (pun intended)? A Sex and the City marathon was on. A pretty girly, and pretty perfect afternoon, if you ask me.
