Emotions are heightened after a long tiring year; we miss loved ones that are unable to join our celebrations - some are interstate and others no longer with us. And alcohol makes some family and friends merry, whilst others become melancholic.
And so when it is all over, we are relieved. And finally, we can relax.

cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
(mixture will fizz and bubble a little).
Batter will be thick.
Fill cupcake papers with 1/4 cup level measures of batter.
Bake for 17-22 minutes.
To frost - Mix 3 tablespoons of the champagne into your fave buttercream icing.
Honestly, I don't know if the type of champagne will impact on the flavour. This was a bottle I happened to have in my cupboard. (I think it's a pretty cheap bottle too..)
