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.

    Thanks a tonne for sharing this recipe… I just made them and they taste delish.. I did halve the recipe (did not want 24 cupcakes, although could eat each one myself :D) I have linked your recipe to my blog (since I blogged about me baking it :D)… Im a new baker and still learning to decorate so my cupcake looks no way near yours… Thanks again for sharing

    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
