Champagne Cupcakes for New Years Eve

December 23, 2013

Happy Christmas week! I wanted to share these Champagne Cupcakes for New Years Eve made with champagne, orange juice and orange zest. I used  Golden Blossom Honey which is family owned and has operated since 1921. Golden Blossom Honey is  100% American-made product and their signature patented blend is composed of three flowers — extra-white clover, sage buckwheat and orange blossom. Happy holidays everyone!!
