Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Champagne is a sparkling wine, and while many expensive champagnes are available, this is one time you might choose less expensive champagne. Have the champagne at room temperature when preparing the cake.
  • For pink decorator sugar crystals, edible pink pearls and decorative cupcake liners, check out fancyflours.com.
  • Sprinkle garnishes on cupcakes just before serving to maximize sparkle and keep them from absorbing moisture and melting into frosting.
