WHITE CHOCOLATE PINK MOSCATO CUPCAKES


If the weather is not going to hurry up and get Spring-like maybe I can add Spring to the kitchen with fresh flowers, my favorite pink champagne or moscato and yummy cupcakes! Seeing my bottle of pink bubbly and not been able to drink it out on the patio made me decide if I can't drink wine on the porch, I can eat cupcakes on the couch! 
Yum  

 Thus, this recipe was born and I'm am absolutely in love with how fluffy yummy they turned out! I simply love how girly they are and pretty for spring! 

 You obviously know by now how much of a Moscato and champagne fan I am! To me, they are very similar and since I love the both the pink Moscato and the Barefoot pink Moscato champagne, I wanted to see what would happen if I added both of these yummy bubbly's to a the cupcake and buttercream frosting! The result is pure heaven!


Can you imagine, serving these at brunch, baby showers, bridal shower's or a girls night in! I even let my teenagers try them, they thought they were pretty special.
