Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
Website Source: Betty Crocker
Wine Cupcake Ingredients
- 6 cups icing sugar
- 1/3 cup butter (softened)
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup Sauvignon Blanc wine
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
- Yellow decorator sugar crystals/edible yellow pearls
- 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix (I tend to use the Vanilla Cake Mix as I can’t find the yellow!)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup Sauvignon Blanc wine
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
Wine Cupcake Directions
Heat oven to 170° C. Place paper cupcake cases in 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make cake batter as directed on box, using cake mix, water, wine, oil, eggs and lemon rind. Divide batter evenly among cupcake cases at about two-thirds full.
Bake 20-22 minutes or until skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
In large bowl, beat powdered sugar, butter and salt with beater on low speed until blended. Beat in wine and lemon rind. If frosting is too thick, beat in more wine a few drops at a time. Frost cupcakes. Sprinkle with yellow sugar and pearls.
