  • 52 Cupcakes – #30 Peach Bellini Cupcakes

    Peach schnapps and champagne baked in a cupcake is a little slice of heaven particularly on a Wednesday. Who says that we should wait until the weekend for a little bubbly? Not I.

    Rebecca asked what the flavor was in the icing and I told her the ingredients. She stated, “Is that alcohol?” I said “Yes, but a very small amount.” So Rebecca immediately dubbed cupcake #30 the naughty peach cupcake.
     

     
    This cupcake was created by Amy from the Sing For Your Supper blog. You know how I love stories, right? Well I am excited to introduce you to Amy because her story is really cool. You see she is an opera singer and a self taught chef and photographer. Her blog name comes from a song in a Broadway musical. So Amy’s cool quotient just soared in my book.

    So what do you get when you combine an opera singer and alcohol? Peach Bellini cupcakes. And you will not be disappointed. The recipe was super simple to follow. The icing is really soft so make sure your cupcakes are cooled completely. I wouldn’t know though because I always follow directions to the letter of the law. Sure.

    I highly suggest you eat a naughty peach cupcake mid week, too. And if you have had a long day, you will have plenty of naughty bubbly to wash it down with.
     

     
    Jeff asked if I bought Cristal champagne for the cupcakes, which is typically over $200 a bottle. As for me and my house, we serve Korbel. It was under $10 with my VIP card because that is how we roll.
     

     
    So head on over to Amy’s site and tell her I sent you. You can find the link to her recipe here.

    Story of the 52 cupcakes:

    I am making 52 cupcakes this year in honor of my chemotherapy buddy. When we were undergoing chemotherapy, people would bring cupcakes and other treats to the chemotherapy “lounge”. We would smile, laugh, and talk about how we were so nauseous and that all we could eat was saltine crackers and Sprite. We were glad that our family and friends were comforted by them though. My friend said, “If we survive this disease, we should eat a different cupcake every week for the rest of our lives.” My friend did not survive. So in honor of him, I am making a different cupcake every week for a year. Every time I make a new cupcake and lick my fingers, I think of him and his zest for life. So in honor of my friend and all cancer patients, I challenge you to eat a cupcake today and remember to always lick your fingers.

    I love that photo of Jeff “guzzling” the champagne right out of the bottle! Ha!

    It still makes me giggle. Especially since we really aren’t big drinkers.

    Okay, so I just HAD to look at the picture. Right now, it’s hard for me to even look at the words “cupcake” or “cookie” without wanting one. But your pictures are so pretty (even if they are a bit naughty)! :)
