Mixing up a batch of Pink Champagne Frosting in my KitchenAid Mixer!

In order to participate in Cook for a Cure I made a batch of my Pink Champagne Cupcakes.   I figure using champagne in cupcakes is a great way to celebrate those that have survived Breast Cancer.  These are such easy cupcakes to make since they start with a box of cake mix.   It doesn’t get much easier then that!

I wanted to use pink champagne since pink is the color for Breast Cancer Awareness plus it makes these cupcakes simple gorgeous.  I simply added champagne to both the cake mix and the frosting, along with some hot pink food coloring, and then mixed them up in my KitchenAid mixer.   Unfortunately I don’t have one of the pretty pink ones, but I do love my silver mixer, especially with my personalized decals all over it.

These cupcakes baked up super light and fluffy.  I put a pink champagne buttercream frosting on top of them.  Then I sprinkled the cupcakes with edible pink pearls, pink and white sprinkles, and silver sprinkles.  I love the way they turned out.  They are so bright and vibrant and have a subtle champagne flavor.
