I love wine.
And my wine of choice would be a rosé.
I also love the colour pink.
And I can’t decide yet if I like the rosé wine because of the flavour or because it is pink.
Yes, I can be shallow that way. Don’t judge.
I recently discovered rosé champagne and I was hooked. Immediately my mind thought of cake.
I had the perfect event to try it, I had a party to go to on New year’s!
I took my champagne cupcakes recipe and tweaked it a bit to use rosé champagne and added some raspberry puree in.
I added raspberries in to add a bit more of a pink colour because I know the rosé champagne would not be enough to give that nice pink colour.
And even with the raspberries, it didn’t give enough of a pink colour especially in the batter and pastry cream. So, I had to add a bit of pink food colouring to get to the pink that I like.
pastry cream in the middle is a nice surprise when you bite into the cupcake
and it also gave that added champagne flavour.
You might have extras and you can eat them by spoonfuls (like I do!) or
use it as a filling for macarons.
I used sprinkles by Sweetapolita to finish the cupcakes. I was surprised to find them at a local
store, so I snatched them up. Now, how
fun are these sprinkles?!
I love how this one came out, the flavours were subtle but sophisticated. I used a sparkling rosé wine (Martini) btw to make this because it’s cheaper. And I really don’t want to waste the real deal on baking because I’d rather be drinking it instead.
Disclaimer: There will be leftover wine after you make the recipe, so there might be some drinking involved while making this cupcake. MFC will not be responsible to whatever happens after that J
