Just wanted to check in quickly before 2013 draws to a close. Apologies for the lack of posts, but I’ve been taking the holiday season to figure out a few things going on in my life right now.
I planned on sharing a recipe for Champagne Cake Truffles with you, but unfortunately, there was a slight mishap with the batter. Hopefully I can share with you later this week, as it will be perfect for Valentine’s Day as well!
Here’s a quick preview.
And for those that are interested in baking with champagne: Simply take any cake mix (though the white cake mix bases allow the champagne flavor to cook through more), mix with 1.5 cups of any ol’ champagne and bake according to package instructions.
Warning, batter will be bubbly, seriously. You might also consider adding a touch of Chambord for a little raspberry kick. Next, consider mixing some canned pink frosting with a touch of champagne, and you’ve got yourself a nice little boozy cake for New Year’s Eve.
The best part? You can just drink the rest of the champagne while you bake. Look for the full recipe later this week!
Hopefully, this fun countdown workout will make up for the absentee cake truffle balls.
Ya don’t have to yell “Happy New Year!” at the end, but personally, I find that it’s more fun that way.
I hope to make some big changes in the New Year and eventually be able to share them with all of you. I may even make a few resolutions (hey, why not?)!
In the meantime, I’m off to the gym to bust out this countdown workout before the festivities begin. Wishing you a healthy, happy AND safe New Year!
