Sweet Treats Saturday: Champagne Cupcakes

What better treat for Valentine's Day then some champagne cupcakes? When a friend showed me this recipe, I was instantly looking for an occasion to make it.

The cupcakes and pastry cream filling have a light champagne taste. I made a slight tweak to the frosting because I thought it was a little too sweet.  You can try either way and adjust it after you taste it.

The champagne combined with sour cream, and the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.

The recipe can be found at the Sprinkle Bakes Blog.  My revised version of the frosting is below.

Just out of the oven.

The pastry cream filling. I carved out the filling with a spoon.

Champagne Cupcakes Frosting (Revised):
1 cup plus 1 tbsp champagne or prosecco
2 sticks of butter softened
3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2  oz. cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla

Prepare frosting as in the original directions, but add the additional cream cheese, confectioner's sugar and vanilla.

Beautiful champagne cupcakes.

Also, I had plenty of the pastry cream filling for another batch of the cupcake batter.
