New Year’s Eve Dessert: Bubbly Champagne Cupcakes

New Year's Eve Dessert: Champagne Cupcakes with Champagne Buttercream! Pizzazzerie.com

Who is ready for New Year’s Eve?! It’s one of my favorite nights of the year. That’s not because I go out and party all night (my 20-something self has long since changed over to stay-at-home dinner party nights with friends) but one thing hasn’t changed, I love to celebrate with some bubbly! Pop that champagne, y’all! So, when I was thinking about sharing a festive New Year’s Eve recipe with all of you, I decided a champagne flavored cupcake with champagne buttercream frosting was in order. That’s right, this cupcake is bubbly from bottom to top!

Aren’t they elegant served up with mini bottles of bubbly and pretty champagne flutes for a New Year’s Eve dessert bar? Adding the bubble detail on top is my favorite element of these cupcakes (besides the delicious taste). I used a combination of mini white gumballs, white sixlets, and white pearl sugar sprinkles to create the champagne bubble effect (find at candy, cake, and craft stores). I also used a small round piping tip to pipe some round bubbles on with frosting. Then I added a few little taps of shimmer disco dust for touches of sparkle. They’re truly so easy to make and resemble the just-poured look of champagne! Cheers! How to make Champagne Bubble Cupcakes

Now I used a doctored up cake mix for this recipe but you could certainly try a homemade from scratch cupcake recipe if you are against cake mixes. The idea is the same, top with a delicious champagne buttercream (recipe below) and decorate with lots of “bubbles”. It truly makes a really delicious cupcake!
