Peach Bellini Cupcakes

Do you have a ladies brunch coming up soon?  No?  Well, then you should plan one just so that you can make these cupcakes… they’re perfection!  So cute & classy… we love classy around here. 😉

I’m fairly certain that there is nothing better in life than having cupcakes with champagne.  See, told ya… perfection!  I thought about these a few weeks ago and then decided to google them before heading into the kitchen.  Google folks, it’s your bff.

Before I start baking I always do a quick search to see if someone has already come up with the idea that’s brewin’ in my head.  100% of the time (promise, 100%) I find something… it might not be exactly what I’m looking for, but probably something close.  I found a few recipes but these looked amazing and I actually had everything already, win x 2.

    I’m starting a home cupcake business is it unethical to use other peoples recipes? I love baking and I’ve been baking fora couple of years now. I want to take it to the next level now. Need some helpful advice

      Great question. You should never pass off someone else’s recipe as your own. But, if you’re starting a cupcake business, you have to start with recipes from somewhere! If you’ve found a recipe from a baker you like and want to use it… try adapting it and making it your own. Good luck and happy baking! :)

    Just wondering if you could sub the Peach Snapps for different kind of liqueur, as I am not a huge Peach fan but these look delicious

    I just came across your peach Bellini cupcakes and the ingredients say 6 egg whites, but in the directions it says to add one egg at a time. Is this correct?

      You just don’t want to dump all the egg whites in at once. You want to make sure each is completely incorporated before moving on to the next. So, if you want to crack them ahead of time into one bowl, just add a little at a time. Make sense?
