How do you make a champagne cake, and champagne frosting?

Lorraine - from Azusa, CA

There are two ways to get a champagne flavor in your cake. The first way would be to add a small amount champagne flavoring to your favorite cake or buttercream recipe; like a vanilla extract. Champagne flavoring can be found at speciality stores or online. The second way would be to use champagne in your recipe in lieu of some of the liquid in a recipe. See how we used sweet Rose champagne in our Champagne cupcakes with Rosewater Buttercream recipe.
