Champagne Cup Cakes

Monique 1

My name is Monique. I am part of one of the coolest RICE Sales Teams…GERMANY. Usually I am in charge of Sales and PR and not only for that matter a huge fan of blogs, pinterest, Instagram…you name it. Over my work for RICE I met a very nice girl named Clara. I am a daily addict to her lovely blog http://www.tastesheriff.com/ . She invited me to be part of her blog. I felt as if somebody offered me a small part in my favorite soap on TV. Exciting!

We decided to bake together. I told Clara about the easiest recipe (ever) for a dough that I am always using baking cupcakes and cake. My mom wrote it down 30 years ago and I inherited her recipe book. The dough is made with fizzy water and we were thinking it would be less kids party and more us to replace water with champagne. One rainy Saturday in December Clara, her friend Nicole host of the lovely blog:  www.livelifedeeply-now.blogspot.de and I met up in the RICE Showroom and mixed and mixed and…. et voilá. We had a blast and way to much champagne. The session was mentioned in two HAPPY NEW YEAR blogs. One of my everyday magic moments in 2012!
