To Make the Cupcakes
Prepare cake mix according to directions on the box, using champagne or sparkling wine in place of water.
Scoop batter into lined muffin pan, filling each cup no more than halfway.
Bake cupcakes and allow to cool before frosting.
To Make the Frosting
Cream softened butter using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer. Add powdered sugar gradually, mixing as you go.
Add food coloring and 2 Tablespoons milk and continue adding a Tablespoon at a time, as needed, until your frosting is smooth and fluffy consistency, but will still form stiff peaks. (About 2-3 minutes)
Use a frosting decorating bag fitted with a star tip to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.
