Kir Royale Cupcake
For this month's Cupcake Hero, the challenge was liquor. Well, my favorite drink is the golden bubbly Champagne and so I tweaked it, added some Creme de Cassis for a Kir Royale Cupcake.
The cake is a beautiful genoise, flavored with the Kir Royale combo and then a simple easy glaze. The small Sofia Coppola sparkling wine cans are perfect for this recipe. You can buy two singles, use up one and a half and have a sip for the chef. It's not great tasting, but it's good enough and I didn't have to crack open my special bottle of Veuve.
I took them to a debate watching party and they were devoured, so I declare them a success.
