Mimosa Cupcakes

Okay, okay, now I know I’ve said this a thousand times BUT…. these HAVE to be the best cupcakes I have ever made.

I know. Trust me on this, these little cuties are just bursting with mimosa flavor! How adorable will they be on your holiday brunch spread OR at a New Year’s Ever party…. swoon.

AND, they are just so photogenic… I may have gone a touch overboard with these pics…. #SorryNotSorry

These are soooo easy to make too, I used a boxed white cake mix, like usual. I juiced those mini Halos mandarin oranges for the liquid in the cupcakes and wow, they are really bursting with sweet orange flavor! Also, I got the recipe inspiration for the frosting from Gimme Some Oven.

How to make mimosa cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fresh squeeze oranges for 1 cup of juice.
  • Mix juice with the rest of the ingredients with a hand mixer until combined. On medium speed, mix for another 2 minutes.
  • Fill mini cupcake tins lined with wrappers 2/3 of the way full.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Place on a wired rack for 5 minutes, and then transfer cupcakes directly on to rack. Cool completely.
  • Top cupcakes with frosting and sprinkles, if desired. Serve and enjoy!

I just can’t get over how amazing these came out. Even Jeremy, a big skeptic that normally doesn’t like things that aren’t “traditional” went nuts over these! I think he had 10 in one sitting but who’s counting? LOL

Please, please try these mini mimosa cupcakes! Even if you think you don’t like champagne, these are just amazing. The alcohol flavor is verrrry subtle but they taste just like the best mimosa!

  1. GIRL…STOP IT! These look amazeballs and I don’t need to be making any more of your recipes. 😉 Thank you for linking this up at Snickerdoodle Sunday- hope you’ll come back later this week with your latest makes!

  2. oh yeah i would eat a few of these for sure! I love those little halos so having them in a slightly less messy form of a cup cake (hey I am experienced at messy eating lol) would be so delish!! love this!

  3. Hey there Dana, those cupcakes looks good and sounds good too, I’d love to give them a try! I’m Louise Douglas with A Gainesville mom writes, and one of the newest co-hosts on Wakeup Wednesday linky, and I’m just stopping by to say congrats for being featured on this weeks linky! I have met some pretty amazing women behind a blog while co-hosting, and I’m thankful that I decided to give it a try because I may have never met you all if it wasn’t for the linky party! I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, and you are so amazing that I’m your newest follower on pinterest, twitter, and + google! you rock!

  4. I made these for my new job to share with the girls and they were a huge hit! I made a couple of changes/additions but mostly kept it the same and everyone wanted the recipe. Definitely gonna have to make these again soon.

  5. I made these tonight and brought them to a rehearsal: everyone RAVED about them! The only difference I made was substituting melted butter for vegetable oil. Someone said they were heavenly and on a totally different spiritual plane than us haha. Amazing recipe!!

  6. I made these for a girls’ night, and they were devoured. Only change I made was to unsweetened applesauce in place of vegetable oil. I also topped the cooled cupcakes with some of the champagne, before frosting them, and garnished the frosting with orange zest.

Leave me your lovely thoughts
