Your post is so cute! I can't wait to try this recipe and will make sure to leave two sips for me
I just been holding on since there's always children in out gatherings and I don't think this is a kid's cake/cupcake
OK here's the official chemist's report.
Champagne starts out at 12% alcohol by volume.
The alcohol does bake completely out of the cake, leaving behind the fragrance and moisture.
In the icing, you cook the cup of champagne to 248F which also makes it alcohol free.
So there is the original alcohol in the 1/4 cup wine added to the icing at the end...but nowhere else. This is divided up by 12 servings. 60ml x 0.12 = 7.2 grams in 12 servings or 0.6 gram alcohol per serving.
The unique flavour of this cake comes from the live yeast that is present in the wine before baking.
This cake might not be legal for abstainers but it can safely be served to children.
