What you will need?

How to make weed pink champagne cupcakes?
Step One: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line three muffin tins with cupcake liners.
Step Two: In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and cannabis until thoroughly combined.
Step Three: Add in eggs one at a time while mixing at low speed. Once they are mixed into the batter it’s okay to turn up the mixer to medium high; add in vanilla extract then slowly add milk until you have reached desired consistency of the recipe (should be thin). It should look thick but still pourable – this way there is enough room for all ingredients without spilling over during cooking or when placed inside of cups!
In another bowl whisk together egg whites and cream of tartar until a light, airy meringue forms.
Step Four: Add in the egg whites and cream of tatar to your batter and mix on medium-high for about five minutes or until you have reached the desired consistency (should look fluffy).
Lastly, add pink food coloring into the cupcake mixture – this will give it that perfect bright pink color! Place the baking cups into muffin tin with cupcake liners; fill each liner halfway full with cake batter. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 18-20 mins or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Allow cooling before frosting.
The following is optional but recommended because they provide wonderful flavor which makes these delicious champagne cakes even better! You can also sprinkle some rosemary or thyme leaves on top of each cupcake.

- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) – line muffin tins with paper cupcake liners or use the nonstick cooking spray;
- In the bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
- In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using an electric hand mixer), cream butter on medium speed for about 30 seconds; add sugar and beat on high speed until light and fluffy, about another 90 seconds.
- Add eggs one at a time while beating constantly after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Reduce speed to low once fully incorporated.
- Add vanilla extract then mix briefly before stopping the machine and adding cannabis oil that has been warmed in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Beat on low speed just until oil is mixed in – do not mix too long at this stage or cupcakes will have a tough crust.
- Add flour mixture to wet ingredients and beat on the low-medium speed with a stand mixer (or by hand) just until combined, stopping machine as needed to scrape down sides of the bowl. Fill liners ¾ full using an ice cream scoop or large spoon that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
- To make pink champagne buttercream frosting: In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring sugar and water to boil; reduce heat so syrup simmers without boiling up. Cook for 15 minutes then remove from heat and allow to cool completely before using.
- Add the cooled mixture into an electric mixer with beater attachments or stand mixer with the paddle attachment and beat on high speed until it has reached desired consistency – thin enough to drizzle but thick enough not to run down the side of your cupcakes.
- Spread onto chilled cake rounds (or use as filling) and top with flowers or other decorations if desired. Store in refrigerator while assembling other desserts that need refrigeration, such as gelatin mousse cups.
