Champagne Cupcakes

Happy New Year!

I personally cannot wait for 2010 to begin.  Good riddance, 2009!  We are lucky enough to spend a low key evening with a few close friends who are very special to us.  Since champagne will be my drink of choice for the evening, I thought I'd give champagne cupckes a whirl.  YUM!  I think they taste great, and I'm hoping my friends will, too. The cupcake itself is a sort of white cake mixed with champagne, and the icing is a basic buttercream recipe with some more champagne added.  Once the cupcakes cooled, I also brushed some champagne on top of them to soak into the cake. 

I found this idea out of the Martha Stewart Cupcake Book, but adapted it with chocolate numbers and clock hands instead of icing and photocopies. 

I didn't get as creative with the leftovers...just wrote 2010, which I am hoping turns out to be a great year for everyone.

  1. That is too wonderful! The concept of the clock is great, and the champagne sounds intriguing. Welcome to the Foodie Blogroll, by the way! I noticed that you just joined.
