These cupcakes are really something. These contain one of the Nation's favourite bubbly drinks, Prosecco. Teamed with strawberries, these cupcakes are truly luxurious and elegant. Treat your friends with these little wonderful treats!




  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºc/160ºc fan and line a 12-hole muffin tin with lining cases

  2. Cream together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one
    at a time with a tablespoon of flour each time and beat well until combined. Fold
    in the remaining flour and then gently mix in the prosecco to make a mixture
    with a smooth dropping consistency.


    Top Tip: Prosecco alternatives
    • 150g Unsalted butter
    • 175g Billington's Golden caster sugar
    • 2 Eggs
    • 175g Self raising flour
    • 2 tbsp Prosecco
  3. Fill each cake case about 2/3 full. If you want to be really precise, each case will
    have about 50g in it.

  4. Bake in your preheated oven for about 25 minutes until well risen and springy.

  5. As soon as the cakes are out of the oven, remove the cakes from the tin and leave
    them to cool on a rack in their cases.

  6. While the cakes are cooling soak your strawberries in the Prosecco. Make the
    icing by whisking the butter, icing sugar, vanilla bean paste and milk until they
    are smooth and combined. If you can, use a stand mixer for this and whisk for 5
    whole minutes. The longer you whisk the softer and lighter the icing will

    • 150ml Prosecco
    • 150g Unsalted butter
    • 375g Silver Spoon Icing sugar
    • 1 tsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla bean paste
    • 2 tbsp Milk
  7. When the cakes are cool, cut a strawberry sized hole in the top and push in a
    whole, soaked strawberry. Do this for all 12 cakes. Finally pipe or spread your
    buttercream onto each cake.

    Top Tip: Toppings
    • 12 whole Strawberries
  8. Serve soon as the strawberries will make the cake damp inside.

    Would rosé work rather then Prosecco, and still taste equally as good?

    We have not tried the recipe with rosé, but I am sure it would taste yummy, might want to try a fizzy rosé?

    Happy Baking!

    Would they be okay if I made them in the evening and then served them the next day?


    The cupcakes will be fine to be prepared the evening in advance of when you are planning to serve. Make sure that you store them in cool, dry place.
