Seriously, what’s better than getting your buzz on while treating yourself to a heavenly strawberry moscato cupcake? These delightful cupcakes are vanilla with pink buttercream frosting spiked with Stella Rosa® Pink wine.

 Prep Time 20 minutes

 Cook Time 18 minutes

 Total Time 38 minutes

 Servings 18 cupcakes

Ingredients:

Cupcakes

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Stella Rosa® Pink

Frosting

  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon Stella Rosa® Pink
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

Instructions:

Cupcakes

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in the vanilla extract just until combined.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup Stella Rosa® Pink and 1/2 cup sour cream (mixture will fizz a little).

With the mixer on low, gradually add in the flour mixture in three parts, alternating with moscato mixture. Mix until batter is uniform and smooth, about 30 seconds.

Fill prepared cupcake liners about 3/4 full and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven, transfer cupcakes to a cooling rack, and allow them to cool to room temperature before frosting.

Frosting

Place 1 cup of Stella Rosa® Pink in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium-high heat until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Transfer to a small bowl or condiment cup and allow to cool.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, cream softened butter and powdered sugar together. Once the frosting is thick and fluffy, pour in the reduced 2 tablespoons moscato plus 1 tablespoon moscato from the bottle and mix well.

Frost the cupcakes and garnish with nonpareil sprinkles if desired.

Stellabrate National Candy Month with Stella Rosa Candy!

  • -

Hope you don’t have a dentist appointment anytime soon because June is National Candy Month! It’s like Halloween but instead of 1 night of sweets, you get 30 full days! This month, rather than just aimlessly feeding your sweet tooth with store-bought, pre-wrapped goodies, challenge yourself to make your own candies from scratch. If you need another boost of inspiration, choose recipes that will leave you with Stella Rosa wine-infused confectionery. Not that you need reminding, but Stella Rosa makes everything better.

Here are just a handful of ways to Stellabrate National Candy Month to get you started! Download all the recipes mentioned below, here:

Start the month with some Stella Rosa Black Lollipops. Tell us, how many licks does it take for you to get to the center?

Next, try your hand at making red wine truffles with Stella Rosa Red or Rosso. There is no secret to making a good truffle – they’re actually much easier to make than most people think!

Pick up some gummy bear molds (or any other shape molds) so you can create a beautiful assortment of Champagne gummies! Our favorite sparkling wines to use here are the Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose, Brachetto, and Prosecco, but you’ll still need just a little bit of food coloring to get the right color.

If you’re having a small get together (or just a night to treat yourself) and would like to offer Stella Rosa and chocolate pairing options, go for it! You have our recommendations, but you’re still encouraged to try your own pairings too.

You’re going to need something to wash all this candy down, and what’s a better choice of drink than a Stella Rosa-based libation? Call it the Stella Rosa Cotton Candy cocktail.

Tell us what you think and share your own Stella Rosa-infused candies and pairings! Vibe with us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and hashtag your photos with #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate for a chance to be featured.

DIY Time: Drink Wine, Give Your Succulents A Home

  • -

Stella Rosa is trendy, succulents are trendy, and DIY crafts are trendy. So, here’s a fun idea: how about repurposing your wine corks to create mini planters for succulents? They’re simply adorable, not to mention easy to put together. Plus, it gives you extra reason (not that you need one) to finish off another bottle of Stella Rosa – you need the cork!

Materials:
• Wine corks
• Kitchen paring knife or pocket knife
• Magnets
• Hot glue gun
• Soil
• Succulents

Let’s get crafty:
1. Drink Stella Rosa wine and collect the corks.
2. Lay out a piece of paper, cardboard, or towel to work over. This makes the cleanup process much easier and faster.
3. Use a kitchen paring knife or a pocket knife to carve out a hole in the cork. Do this by turning the knife in a circular motion. The hole should go about halfway down the cork.
4. Glue magnets to the corks.
5. Fill corks with soil.
6. Add succulent plants. Add a little more soil and pack it down.
7. Drizzle with a little bit of water.

That’s it! Now you’re free to put your new wine cork succulents onto the fridge, or wherever you had in mind, though most ideal locations would be near a window so it gets some natural light. Then sprinkle or spritz it with some water 1-2 times per week. They’re extremely low maintenance!

If you’re going to forge ahead with this DIY project (and we hope you do), keep us in-the-know on social media by following us on Instagram and Twitter and using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate on your photos.
