This weekend Bri came to visit me in Madison and not only did he bring me a present, but when I asked him what he wanted to do during the day on Saturday, he said, "Lets make tipsy cupcakes!"
Yup, he's pretty awesome!
Plus, for my birthday he had this apron made:
So, I got on my awesome apron and we got to work on making some Tipsy Cupcakes! I love my Intoxicated Cupcakes book and I've already made Mojito Cupcakes and Champagne Cupcakes. We decided on White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes. They came out beautifully and we had a ton of fun making them together! I love when he visits me here and I love baking so it was just an amazing weekend!
We brought these cupcakes over the my friend Tamara's house to watch the Badger Game with her family. IT turned out the be pretty good that we had the cupcakes, because after the disappointing defeat, we all wanted something to cheer us up! What could be better than cupcakes with booze?
White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes (adapted from Intoxicated Cupcakes)
2 cups flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup raspberry liqueur
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
For the Frosting:
1 8 oz package light cream cheese
3 tbsp unsalted buter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-4 tsp raspberry liqueur
3 drops red food coloring (optional)
raspberries for topping (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a cupcake pan with 24 liners.
2. In a medium bowl, combined flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
3. In a large bowl, beat eggs, butter, liqueur and chocolate chips until creamy (except for the chocolate chips). Add in the flour mixture and beat until just combined.
4. Pour the batter into the prepared cups so that they are 3/4 full. Bake for 18-22 minutes and then let cool in pan for 5-10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
5. Make the frosting: beat the butter and cream cheese until well combined and fluffly. Beat in the sugar and then the vanilla. Add in 2 tsp of the liqueur and then add more depending on taste preference. Add in food coloring to get pink frosting! Frost the cupcakes and then top with a raspberry.
