DIY: Champagne Cake

This recipe is super easy and looks fancy. Like you worked really hard to impress your guests. But the secret is, it’s still a cake made from a box. Ssshhh…


You’ll need:

1 box moist white cake mix

1 1/4 cup dry champagne (tip: just use one of the mini bottles, it’s basically this exact measurement without the hassle)

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3 large egg whites

1 can whipped white frosting

champagne flavoring, if available

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat your cake pan of choice with cooking spray.

Combine the cake mix, champagne, oil and egg whites. Beat on low speed until well combined. Pour into cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove and cool completely.

Empty the frosting into a bowl and mix in desired flavoring. If you can find champagne flavoring, fantastic. I came up short on that part. I chose to use orange flavoring and made a Mimosa cake.


You can make this as a fancy cake for a party, or darling cupcakes for a shower. Or perhaps you just need to spice up your Friday night. Enjoy!
