..Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes

I volunteered to make the cupcakes for a coworkers wedding shower at the office.  I thought that champagne was such a fitting flavor for the cake because it just seems to have a celebratory ring to it and what goes better with champagne than strawberries, right?

Champagne Cupcakes
1 box white cake mix
3 egg whites
1/3 cup veggie oil
1 1/4 cups champagne

Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for 17 to 22 minutes.

Strawberry Butter-Cream Frosting
3 sticks of butter
3 cups powdered sugar
teaspoon of vanilla
3/4 cup strawberry preserves

Beat butter and vanilla until creamy, then gradually add in powdered sugar one cup at a time.  Add preserves and mix until everything is well combined. I added some pearly sprinkles for a touch of wedding-ness.
