Don't they look elegant served up with mini bottles of bubbly and pretty champagne flutes for a New Year’s Eve dessert bar? Adding the bubble detail on top is my favorite element of these cupcakes, plus they taste incredible! We used a combination of mini white gumballs, white sixlets, and white pearl edible edible glitter to create the champagne bubble effect -- feel free to add Silver & Gold Edible Tinker dust as well to really make them pop!

** Bakers Tip - use a small round piping tip to pipe some round bubbles on with frosting. Then add a few little taps of our edible Tinker Dust or Luster Dust for touches of sparkle. They’re truly so easy to make and resemble the just-poured look of champagne!

Now we used a doctored up cake mix for this recipe but you could certainly try a homemade from scratch cupcake recipe if you are against cake mixes. The idea is the same, top with a delicious champagne buttercream (recipe below) and decorate with lots of “bubbles”. It truly makes a really delicious cupcake!
