Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes

Cupcakes and bubbly? Not really the first combination I’d think of. I usually like my cupcakes with coffee, not a hint of alcohol. But of course, it’s always fun to try new things. And there was a leftover can of bubbly so…Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes!

They look so simple and so cute. You can almost serve them to kids. Haha.

Happiness in a jar. No, it’s not anti-aging cream. It’s sprinkles!

Wanna see why sprinkles=happiness?

frosting alone 😦 with sprinkles fun! 🙂

I don’t drink much but when it looks cute in a can I can haha. Jokes. I can only really enjoy mixed drinks and I know that’s pretty bad. I like being conscious, thank you.

For fun I placed sprinkles on champagne. It tasted weirder than it should be. Note to self: champagne, no sprinkles.

Oh well champagne or not cupcakes always call for a celebration!
