  1. Both sets of cupcakes look good, but too bad the first batch tasted horribly. I love the little heart sprinkles! Very cute!!!

      Thanks, CC! I was telling my friend about the failed cupcakes and she said, “They probably weren’t as bad as you think, especially to people who buy grocery store cupcakes.” haha. Well, no one else had them really so that’s okay. The heart sprinkles are my favorite, I have seen them used as “lips” before on other cupcakes so they have multiple uses at least.

    These look so yummy and quite festive I have never heard of this brand of bourbon but the bottle and label are cute.

      Thank you! I liked making these with the ganache topping because it’s way easier than frosting. Though I love buttercream frosting, too. It just involves more dishes to clean.

  3. Such pretty cupcakes! I think I need to make boozey cupcakes for my bourbon-loving husband.

    I think you worked with this sponsor before. Did you get a new bottle of booze to use for this?
