Boozy desserts have always been a favourite of mine and these rosé wine cupcakes are no exception. The sweet fluffy cake base is topped with a strawberry and wine-infused frosting, making these little handheld treats the perfect adult Valentine’s Day dessert. This recipe is in collaboration with Magnetic Hill Winery. The Magnetic Hill Reflections Rosé is a flavourful combination of strawberry, blueberry and rhubarb and I think works wonderfully for this cupcake recipe. Considering there is a fair amount of alcohol used in this recipe, I suggest hiding them from the kiddos and rosé all day solo while binge watching Bridgerton.

Yields: 18 cupcakes
Here’s what you’ll need:
For the base:
- ¾ cup butter, softened
- 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
- 6 egg whites
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup Magnetic Hill Winery Reflections (or rosé of choice)
For the frosting:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 Tbsp strawberry jam
- ½ cup Magnetic Hill Winery Reflections (or rosé of choice)
- 2 cups confectioners sugar
- 1-2 drops red food colouring (optional)
- Sprinkles, for garnish (optional)
Here’s what you’ll do:
- Preheat oven to 350° Line 18 cupcake tins with paper liners and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and granulated sugar. Cream with an electric mixer.
- Add egg whites and continue to beat on high until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and beat until combined.
- With mixer on low speed, add flour in 3 parts alternating with wine, until just combined (do not overmix or cupcakes will be dense).
- Scoop batter into lined cupcake tins (about 2/3 full). Bake for 20 minutes or until top of cupcakes bounces back to the touch. Cool completely on wire rack.
- For the frosting, beat butter until light and fluffy. With mixer on low, add confectioners sugar, jam and food colouring. Add wine in 1 Tbsp increments until desired consistency is achieved (if frosting is too stiff, add more wine).
- Pipe frosting onto cupcakes, garnish with sprinkles, and enjoy!
