Ingredients
  

Champagne Funfetti Cupcakes

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Strawberry Champagne Frosting

  • 1 ½ cups unsalted butter
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • ¼ cup champagne

Instructions
 

Champagne Funfetti Cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Beat egg whites on low speed until they begin to froth. Slowly add in ¼ cup of white sugar while continuing to beat. Turn speed to medium and beat until stiff peaks begin to form.
  • In a separate bowl, beat butter, remaining sugar, and egg yolks for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add in oil and vanilla. Add in dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add in champagne. Stir until cohesive.
  • Using a large spoon, gently fold in ⅓ of the egg whites. Once combined, fold in another ⅓ until combined. As you add in the last ⅓ of the mixture, add in sprinkles, gently folding until everything is homogenous.
  • Line your muffin tin, filling each liner ⅔ of the way full. Bake for 20-25 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes away clean.
  • Once cool, brush with champagne. Let sit at least an hour to fully absorb before frosting.

Strawberry Champagne Frosting

  • In a stand mixer, add butter and strawberries, creaming butter for 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add in powdered sugar and champagne. You may need to add more powdered sugar/champagne depending on if the frosting is too hard or soft. You want it to be spreadable, but it shouldn't fall off your knife if you hold it over the bowl.
  • Decorate the cupcakes, top with additional sprinkles, and enjoy!
