Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream 10

Now let me just start by saying that I am not a fan of Valentine’s day (Read my 6 Better Dates Than A Valentine post from last year) , but I am a fan of cupcakes. So, I thought i’d make some sweet treats you can make for your sweetie (ew, I can’t believe I wrote that) or for yourself (I won’t judge!) 

I had been perusing Pinterest for baking ideas, as one does, and came across a ton of recipes for strawberry flavored dishes for Valentine’s day and I especially fell in love with a recipe for champagne cupcakes with strawberry buttercream. Those sounded amazing. So I wrote down the cake recipe and tweaked it a bit and loved the flavor I got. After finding the perfect cake recipe I was on the hunt for a raspberry buttercream because well, I just love raspberries. After hours of baking, tweaking, frosting and staging, here’s about a million photos of the process, with a printable recipe below!

I actually ended up not using lemon juice like the original recipe called for. I swapped it out for a little bit of vanilla to balance out the tartness of the raspberries and it was perfect!Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream// Being Leanna

Yummmmmmmm My house smelled so amazing after making these. Ain’t nothing better than a fruity frosting. Oh, yes there is, champagne cupcakes! I was so impressed with how much I loved these flavors. Have you ever made anything like this?
