Champagne ReductionCrush the cherries slightly to bruise them. Place champagne and cherries in a saucepan on low heat. Reduce the liquid to almost ⅓ of its original quantity. Set aside covered to cool. Tip: By reducing the liquid we intensify the flavor while still keep the quantity the same.

Nutrition Information

Saturated Fat6.7


  • 2 cups Champagne
  • 4 Cherries
  • 8 oz Unsalted butter room temperature
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 4 cups Powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp Champagne extract
  • ½ tsp Clear vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Whipping cream or more champagne



In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter for a minute until creamy.


Add the champagne reduction, salt, champagne extract, and vanilla extract - whip a minute more


Next, add powdered sugar one cup at a time until light and fluffy. If necessary you can add more champagne or whipped cream for consistency. Tip: If you want to pipe firm swirls I recommend not adding too much liquid.


Do a taste test and check if too stiff or still grainy. If necessary add one to two tbsp fresh cream or champagne. Whip some more. Tip: Powdered sugar made with beet sugar tends to stay grainy and may need more liquid to dissolve. Personally, I prefer to use powdered sugar made with cane sugar.


For cupcakes shown above - Fill a piping bag with buttercream and a large star piping tip/nozzle. Pipe a generous swirl on each cupcake.
