In the dessert world, cupcakes are still all the rage (hooray). Amid all this cupcakery, how do you make yours stand out? Give them a kick! Stef over at Cupcake Project has developed a recipe for mimosa cupcakes (that's one in the photo); pause for a sec to think about how delicious and celebratory that sounds.
While you're letting it sink in, let me describe them for you: orange-flavored cupcakes with a sweet champagne syrup drizzled on them, then topped with champagne frosting and a sprinkling of orange zest. Perfect.
Wouldn't these make a spectacular end to a decadent brunch, bridal shower, Mother's Day dinner, any occasion that calls for champagne and dessert — and doesn't every occasion?
