Last Day of Holiday Cupcakes!

By on December 30th, 2009 . Filed under: Cupcake Ideas .

As I was brainstorming of an idea to do for a blog tonight for my last day of Holiday Cupcakes,  I was searching and thinking … what do we drink on New Years Eve,  Champagne!!! And just last year I made a simple Champagne Cupcake with strawberry frosting. Here is the recipe that I used.

Shopping List

  • 1 box white cake mix (no pudding in mix)
  • Bottle of champagne
  • an Orange
  • Strawberry Jam
  • Eggs
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Confectioners Sugar
  • Milk
  • Clear Vanilla
  • Butter
  • Shortening
  • Fresh Strawberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line the cupcake tins with liner.

In a large bowl combine cake mix, 1 &  1/3 cups champagne, 3 egg whites , 1/3 cup vegetable oil, and the zest of one orange. Beat with an electric beater for 2 minutes. Spoon batter into cupcake liners,  fill either one half or 3/4 of the way full for the perfect cupcake.  Cook for 18-20 minutes.

While cupcakes are cooling you can start on the frosting.  In a bowl cream 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and mix well. Gradually add 4 cups sifted confectioners sugar. Once that is all mixed beat in  2 tablespoons of milk. Stir in 1/2 cup of strawberry jam to the frosting … add more to taste if needed.

Once cupcakes are cooled you can frost them. Garnish with halved strawberries.

So yummy & moist!
