When I think of having strawberries with champagne, I am reminded of that scene in Pretty Woman (my FAV movie by the way) where Richard Gere reminds Julia Roberts (as she’s chugging her champagne) that strawberries bring out the flavor of the champagne. But anywho, strawberries are one of my favorite bites when serving champagne and when I came across this fun (and simple) champagne cake dip recipe, I know it was one to try and add to my repertoire.
This is a unique recipe and would be the perfect light dessert option when hosting friends – you may consider trying it out this weekend for Memorial Day weekend!
Champagne Cake Dip
- 1 cup White Cake Mix
- 8oz Whipped Vanilla Frosting ( I prefer whipped for the texture but totally your call)
- 1/4 cup rosé champagne (if you’re planning to serve champagne with this, pop that bottle – no need to open a bottle and let the champs go to waste)
- sprinkles (optional)
In a mixing bowl, add ingredients (if you decide you want to add sprinkles hold off until the end). Whip together and add to serving bowl and serve!
Doesn’t get easier than that darlings! If planning to try this this weekend, add red or blue sprinkles to make it festive – this would be great for July 4th too…hmm, my mind is racing with other ideas…enjoy this and stay tuned for more Summer recipes!

A lot of people only break out the champagne for a special occasion/big celebration (read not occurring often). To me, champagne is surely fabulous for a special occasion but honestly, for anytime! So, next time you have friends over one evening or even happy hour (come on, like you’ve never had sweets before dinner), why not host with ‘cocktails and cupcakes’ and break out one or two desserts of your choice and a signature drink! As always, you want to set the stage for your guests and create a lovely display….
Easy apps for simple and stress free entertaining are a must! And with these Summer months ahead, you should be ready to break out the classics – like these melon, mozzarella, prosciutto skewers! They are one of my absolute favorite combinations. All you need to do is pick up mozzarella, melon (which you can cut up yourself or buy already done – guess which one I chose #thousandguesses), prosciutto slices, and julienned basil for garnish. When assembling, it is ideal to have all pieces similar size; for example, melon you’d want…
Over the past year or so, I’ve been loving coconut everything – from beauty to sips – and what’s better than being hooked on something that’s also great for you! I came across this delicious recipe from Le Zoe Musings and knew I had to try it! What’s better, this recipe is one of the simplest you will find. Talk about the perfect drink to sip on this Summer – prepare for guests or take it on the road – the options are endless! I see myself using it…
