  1. Make & bake cupcakes

    Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line the cupcake pan with liners.

    In a large bowl, combine cake mix, Champagne, egg whites and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl frequently. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.

    Fill baking cups 2/3 full with batter.

    Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a cupcake’s center comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in the pan on a cooling rack for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely on the rack.

  2. Make frosting

    Beat butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. Add milk and beat until light and fluffy.

  3. Decorate cupcakes

    Using a 1M tip, pipe a large rosette on top of each cupcake. Top with gold pearlized sugar for some extra sparkle.
