I can't believe there is only one month until Valentine's Day! Before you know it, summer will be here... Yay! I love Valentine's Day because it brings hearts, the color pink, sweet treats and just happiness to the dreadful wintertime. Also, because I always get to go out to dinner somewhere yummy with my honey:-). Thinking about Valentine's Day got me in the mood to bake up something sweet so I found this recipe for Pink Champagne Cupcakes. Let me warn you how deadly delicious these things are.
