We all look forward to New Year’s Eve but for most of the ladies it usually means hours and hours spent in the kitchen, preparing holiday table.  This recipe will save your time and effort. You should combine dry and wet ingredients in one bowl, mix a little, and your cupcakes are ready for baking. Buttercream frosting is also really simple to make, you won’t need more than 10 minutes to finish it and when you add some golden pearls or sprinkles on top, your festive dessert is ready. If you take this festive treat to New Year’s  party  I’m sure  it will be a hit.

These cupcakes are inspired by Champagne Cupcakes from Life, Love and Sugar. I wanted to make a non-alcoholic version of this festive dessert so instead of champagne I poured some sparkling cider into vanilla cupcake batter and spiked my favorite vanilla buttercream frosting  with it. They came out perfect. The cake was not too fluffy, but not too dense either, and they were really moist and flavorful. And just to make them extra special I topped the cupcakes with a layer of melted white chocolate first, then piped the frosting.

Sparkling cider, white chocolate and cupcakes is perfect combo, it’s great way to celebrate upcoming holidays.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
