The instructions says mix the next (5) ingredients however there's only four (4) after mixing the initial four (4). Are eggs the missing ingredient? I want to make these for the Superbowl.

I made these and they turned out fantastic! The wine flavor is subtle and you probably wouldn't even know it was there if you weren't looking for it. But that being said this is just a fabulous cupcake recipe.

Hi Danielle - You are so correct! Boy is our face red. Thank you for the catch! We fixed the recipe.

I'm going to try and make these with the Pink Mascato and add cocoa powder for a chocolatey Valentine's Day treat.

Do you have any suggestions, if I want the Moscato flavor to be slightly more noticable but still have balanced cupcakes that aren't runny?

My cupcakes didnt turn out very sweet, although I thought they were delicious anyway. Are they suppose to be super sweet?

Hi S - We haven't tried any other version of this recipe, but we will have to now! We were thinking maybe about bumping up the Moscato flavor in the frosting...thoughts on that?

Hi Desiree - These cupcakes lean to the less sweet side. Did you alter the recipe at all to make them sweeter? Let us know if you did and we'll do a follow up blog post on it!

These turned out pretty well for me even tho I added too much buttermilk and got a full two dozen cupcakes. Kind of taste like cornbread and the frosting is addicting!

Making them right now, I'm so excited!! Made a moscato, strawberry glaze to put on them too!

Just took my first batch out of the oven, I used the Pink Moscato. Hope all my friends like them.

Awesome recipe! I used the Red Moscato to give it a little bit of a different flavor!
