Pistachio and Pink Champagne Cupcakes

Recipe:

Your preferred vanilla cupcake recipe for 12;

A cupful of pistachios, ground

Champagne flavouring

500g icing sugar

250g unsalted butter

1) Pre-heat oven and prepare your preferred vanilla cupcake batter.

2) Stir in most of your ground pistachios (leaving only enough to sprinkle on top of cakes).

3) Bake cupcakes and allow them to cool.

4) Mix icing sugar and butter together until light an fluffy.  Add champagne flavouring to taste. Colour pink if desired and spread onto cupcakes.  Decorate and sprinkle with pistachio.

I was  so impressed with the champagne flavouring I used in the frosting – it was so tasty!

I know that Sam would have loved these!

  1. oh ps.. re the Liebster award, I have been trying to find new bloggers to nominate but everyone I likes seems to have loads of followers and been around for ages! how did you find yours? want to give some other new bloggers a pat on the back 🙂

    1. Well, I found it quite hard too, so I decided to just focus on one type of blog (baking) to make it a bit easier. I typed in the wordpress topic search for baking, and spent ages scrolling through the posts and then blogs, and then nominating the ones I really liked : ) It does take a while but I hope you can find some new ones! P.S I think some of the bloggers who liked my actual liebster award post are newer and haven’t had the award, so you could start with a few of those if it helps! : )
