Cupcake Ingredients

  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp frozen orange concentrate
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt

Champagne Syrup Ingredients

  • 2 cups champagne
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Champagne Frosting* Ingredients

  • 1/4 C unsalted butter room temperature
  • 8 oz mascarpone
  • 2 to 3 cups confectioner's sugar depending upon how thick you prefer frosting
  • 8 drops of champagne flavor use an eye dropper


Cupcake Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together the flour, salt, baking soda and powder and set aside. In a medium sized bowl, cream the butter until smooth then add the sugar and cream together. Once the butter and sugar are creamed add in the orange juice concentrate. Mix in one egg at a time. Add in flour mixture 1/3 at a time. When flour is thoroughly mixed, mix in the yogurt. Batter will be slightly lumpy, but should be smooth kind of like pancake batter. Divide the batter evenly into lined cupcake tins and bake for about 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool.

Champagne Syrup Instructions

  • Bring the champagne and powdered sugar to a boil and let them reduce about half way. Don't expect it to get thick. It will still be very liquidy when you are done. Poke holes in the cupcakes and drizzle in the syrup. Let it absorb into the cupcake and add more. Keep adding to taste.

Champagne Frosting Instructions

  • Mix butter and mascarpone until creamy.
  • While mixing over low speed, slowly add the confectioner's sugar one cup at a time, being careful not to over whip frosting.
  • Mix in the champagne flavor.
