  • 1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 3/4 cup champagne or prosecco
  • 2/3 cup diced fresh peaches (or canned, drained and patted dry)

Champagne Pastry Cream:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup champagne or prosecco
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Peach Buttercream:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 6 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • Milk or cream (as needed to thin)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peach flavoring oil or 2 tablespoons peach schnapps
  • Yellow, orange, and red food coloring


  1. Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line pans with liners. Whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Cream butter and sugar. Alternate adding dry ingredients and champagne to butter mixture. Fold in peaches and egg whites. Bake 18-22 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Pastry Cream: Mix some cream with cornstarch and eggs. Heat remaining cream with sugar and champagne, then temper with egg mixture. Cook until thickened. Add butter and vanilla. Cool and chill.
  3. Buttercream: Beat butter and sugar, thin with milk. Add flavoring and color to desired shade.
  4. Assembly: Core cupcakes, fill with pastry cream, replace tops. Pipe buttercream, sprinkle with nonpareils, and garnish with a mint leaf if desired.


  • Ensure egg whites are at room temperature for maximum volume.
  • If using canned peaches, dry them thoroughly to avoid soggy cupcakes.
  • Gradually add color to buttercream for the perfect peach shade.
