Rosé wine cupcakes with vanilla and rose buttercream frosting

Why do the traditional red velvet for Valentines when you can do something else? I was never really into baking traditional cakes for traditional occasions (as you’ve seen from my Rosemary and lemon mini victoria sponges). So today, I decided to bake rosé wine cupcakes!

Again, this is my own recipe, and it was super simple to make 🙂

INGREDIENTS for sponge

  • 1 3/4 self-raising flour
  • 1/2tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 sugar
  • 1 cup of rose wine
  • 1/2 vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp rose extract

INGREDIENTS for frosting

  • pink food colouring
  • 250g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 600g icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp rose extract


  1. Whisk the eggs, sugar, wine, oil, vanilla extract and rose extract together
  2. Add in the flour and baking powder
  3. Mix until smooth and scoop into cupcake cases
  4. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes
  5. For the frosting, whisk butter until pale yellow and soft. Add it three batches of icing sugar, each time whisking until smooth. Add in the extracts and mix
  6. Separate a bit of frosting and add the pink food colouring
  7. Combine both the white and pink frosting into a piping bag and pipe those rosettes!
