What better way to kick off a brand new year of recipe blogging than with a festive raspberry filled champagne cupcake? I had good intentions of posting this recipe before New Years Eve so that you could make them for your New Years Eve celebrations but things just got a little to busy. BUT, if you have a little leftover champagne this morning that you don't really know what to do with - these cupcakes work with champagne that may have lost a little of it's bubbles.

1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
