Pink Champagne Cupcakes: You’re going to be in the VDay spirit whether you like it or not!.

Recipe: A pink champagne cupcake topped with a pink champagne frosting. It’s all very pink. And champagney.

And this is what I do on Sunday afternoon – bake delicious cupcakes and then run very very far in an attempt to fend off negative effects of said cupcakes. So here we go. I’ve actually made these cupcakes before, but it’s been a while and the recipe needed to be tested because these are the second variety of cupcakes being offered at my niece’s baptism in FW in two weeks. (The first was the chocolate chocolate cupcake that I blogged about last week.)

Chocolate Cupcakes for V-Day <3

Fun! And dangerous. Anyway, I figured what better way to celebrate V-Day than with a chocolate dessert covered in more chocolate and decorated with a chocolate heart. So that’s what I did!
