Ingredients
For the dry ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the wet ingredients:
  • 1 cup Champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1/4 cup light oil (such as canola or vegetable)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the frosting:
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons Champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Sprinkles for decoration
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F (180C). Line a cupcake pan with 12 paper liners, or lightly grease the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together.
  3. In a medium bowl, lightly whisk the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until the batter just comes together, don’t over mix. Evenly divide batter among the liners. Bake 18 - 20 minutes until the tops are slightly golden, and a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.

  4. To make the frosting, mix the powdered sugar, vegan butter, vegetable shortening, 2 tablespoons of Champagne, and vanilla extract together with a stand or hand mixer. If needed add another tablespoon of Champagne until desired consistency is reached. Decorate cupcakes however you like then add sparkly sprinkles for some extra pizazz!
