These decadent, moist, cupcakes were made for my dads birthday, he is a very big fan of red wine and when I saw this recipe (although he’s not a fan of cupcakes) I thought it would be an amazing cake to make for his birthday. Well it turned out he was a fan, a big fan of these cupcakes and he said they were the best cupcakes he’s had, which was really sweet but to be honest he doesn’t eat much cupcakes so I can’t really justify it.
I wanted to add some red wine into icing, just to give it even more of a red wine taste, although this was slightly strong for me as I’m not a huge fan of red wine. If like me your not into your red wine omit the red wine in the icing. The taste of the red wine is stronger in the icing, but the taste in the actual cupcake isn’t as bad and tastes really nice, I enjoyed it.
