What could be more perfect for your New Year’s Eve celebration than cupcakes spiked with champagne?  These turned out very cute, and the frosting was so delicious that I’ll definitely use it again, for occasions other than New Year’s!

Ingredients for cake:

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 1/4  cups champagne
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 egg whites
  • 5 drops red food coloring

Preheat oven to 350.  Beat all ingredients together until the batter is smooth.  The champagne frothed up on me a lot at first:

Divide the batter amongst 24 cupcake liners.

Bake until slightly golden, which was 17 minutes for me.  Frost with pink champagne frosting!


  • 3 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons champagne  (I used an  asti)
  • 4 drops red food coloring

Beat together ingredients until smooth, using more champagne if your frosting appears too thick.  Pipe onto the cupcakes – Happy New Year!
