Happy Pink Champagne Cupcakes

I want to welcome you to Pink Saturday and thank Beverly at Website: http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/. She always is very kind to host this wonderful day! Thanks Beverly!

Today I want to share a recipe that is very pretty and pink! It is a recipe for Pink Champagne Cupcakes that I plan to make for my tea party. Since I do not have my  own picture to share here is an image from google that I think you may enjoy
Here is my recipe to share with you today:
1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist White Cake Mix
1 1/4 cup Champagne
1/3 cup oil
3 egg whites
4 to 5 drops of red food coloring
Heat the oven to 350 degrees (325 for dark or nonstick pan). Place paper liners in each of the 24 regular size muffin tins.

In a large bowl mix the dry cake mix with the champagne. Add oil,egg whites and food coloring. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed for two minutes. Divide batter evenly among tins.

Bake 17 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan to cooling rack and cool for another 30 minutes before frosting.

Champagne Frosting

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 Champagne
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 t 5 drops of red food coloring

Garnish
Pink decorator sugar crystals
Edible Pink Pearls

Mix all frosting ingredients in mixing bowl on medium speed until smooth.

Sprinkle with decorations after frosting. Have fun with this recipe. Champagne can be very expensive so find a reasonably priced bottle (or your favorite) and make these cupcakes. Remember to use the high altitude directions on your cake mix package if, like me, you live where it is a Mile High! Make sure your champagne is at room temperature while making this mix.
