Aperol Spritz Cupcakes


Aperol Spritz Cupcakes have all the same flavor of the traditional bubbly cocktail baked into a delicious and moist cupcake.



For the cake:

  • 1 box White Cake Mix
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup of Prosecco
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil

For the filling:

  • 1 small jar of orange marmalade

For the frosting:

  • 6 ounces cream cheese – softened
  • 8 ounces of butter (1 stick) – softened
  • 31/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 45 TBS Aperol (start with 4; test the flavor and add one more if needed)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Combine all cake ingredients.
  3. Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer beat for 2 minutes.
  4. Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  5. Fill liners 1/2 way with cake mix.
  6. Bake for 23 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and cool completely before adding filling and frosting.
  8. When cupcakes are fully cooled, use the large side of a 1A sized frosting tip to cut a hole in the middle of the cupcake and be sure to save the top to use as the lid.
  9. Fill the hole with orange marmalade and place the top back on the cupcake.


  1. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until they are combined.
  2. Add 2 TBS of the Aperol and mix.
  3. Add the confectioner’s sugar, 1/2 cup at a time and continue mixing until all of it has been added.
  4. Add the additional 2 TBS of Aperol and continue to mix until it is all combined.
