Romantic Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day! Divine devil’s food cake cupcakes frosted with bright pink raspberry champagne frosting and topped with fresh raspberries and a raspberry champagne glaze.
Let’s talk about romance for a minute. In my tweens, I pictured love to be just like the movies. You know, the romantic comedies where the female lead accidentally runs into the handsome man. She spills her coffee on his shirt while their dogs get tangled in each others leashes. They laugh. He whisks her off to Paris for a shopping spree. Then it’s candles, chocolate, and Barry White 24/7. Oh, and these Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes. Definitely these cupcakes. Because these cupcakes have raspberry champagne glaze, and that is totally romance.
Every now and then my husband and I reminisce about how we met. The mysterious band guy messages the silly college girl online. They laugh. He whisks her off to Super Walmart in his big white band van on a grocery spree. Now it’s giggling, chocolate, and Ella Fitzgerald 24/7. Oh, and dirty diapers. But I wouldn’t trade my romantic comedy for anything, because I’m deeply in love with my best friend. Well, maybe nix the dirty diapers.
