Bellini Cupcakes

The folks at asked if I could come up with a fabulous cupcake for Mother’s Day.  The first thing that came to mind was a mimosa cupcake – but I’ve already written about mimosa cupcakes.  I decided to create a Bellini cupcake.  (For the uninitiated, a Bellini is similar to a mimosa – only it’s made with peach instead of orange.)

Here’s my description of the bellini cupcakes from Paula Deen’s site:

To make the Bellini cupcakes, start with light champagne cupcakes (with a full cup of champagne in the batter), fill them with burnt peach puree, and top them with a burnt peach buttercream.  Sprinkle sparkly sanding sugar over the cupcakes to give them the festive feel of the fizz of a freshly opened bottle of champagne. The only thing missing from the experience will be the pop of the cork.

For the recipe, head over to!

    Yum! My best friend would love these! She was trying to talk me into coming up with a Bellini cupcake earlier this year so you’ve saved me the trouble.

    This recipe sounds awesome! However, it doesn’t list a baking time. How long do you need to bake these cupcakes?! Thanks!!

    Sarah – I can’t believe I left that line off. Thanks for pointing it out! I just asked the folks at Paula Deen to to add it in. You bake for about 20 minutes or until the cupcakes bounce back when lightly touched.

    Wow and I thought my lemon cake roll with lemon curd filling was going to be fun for Mother’s Day. These sound incredilbe. Maybe you should decorate each on with a mini champagne glass!

    Paula Deen is lucky to have you in her corner. Next up The Cupcake Project on the Food Network.
