These are the moistest cupcakes I have ever eaten. The texture was excellent!! I have also noticed that you can use non-alcoholic champagne with these without losing any of the texture or moistness. The frosting was delicious also. I have made these with different butter cream frosting also and added a couple of tablespoons of champagne to thin it out so I could pipe it onto the cupcakes. Thanks for a great recipe!

The cupcakes turned out great! The frosting was a bit dry so I used an extra 1/2 cup of butter and added a tablespoon or so of gin and some lemon juice to make a Diamond Fizz inspired version, adding a little more powder sugar to get the right consistency. Turned out so yummy!
