Champagne cupcakes do not have a lot of ingredients and some can already be found in your kitchen. They are just like regular cupcakes, but with an adult twist. You’ll need to stop at a liquor store for pink champagne.

  • Pink Champagne (Rosé)
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Pillsbury Creamy Supreme White Frosting
  • Gold and Silver Sprinkles: Wilton offers this gold sprinkles and cupcake liners kit perfect for this recipe.

Pink Champagne vs. White Champagne

I thought champagne only came in one color – white. But apparently there is such a thing as pink champagne, more commonly known as Rosé Champagne.

Pink champagne can have a different flavor than white champagne, but like any bubbly, flavor varies depending on the maker and the grapes. The unique color is derived from the way it is made. It is also a bit more expensive than white champagne.

Specifically for this champagne cupcakes recipe, you want a sweeter, fruity pink champagne, and not a nutty or musty white champagne.

How to Make Champagne Cupcakes

Champagne cupcakes are very easy to make. You are basically going to follow the box instructions and add champagne.

  1. Make the batter. Start by mixing the cake mix, butter, eggs, and champagne. Mix with a mixer on high until well blended.
  2. Bake cupcakes. Pour mixture into cupcake tin with liners, and bake according to box instructions. Let cool completely.
  3. Ice the cupcakes. Fill piping bag with white icing and place 1M tip on the end. Start in the middle and work your way out and up with icing.
  4. Apply sprinkles. Your champagne cupcakes are ready to serve! They will look so pretty served along side a glass of sparkling pink champagne.
