The Champagne Cake Layers
To get the most champagne flavor into my cake layers, I used a combination of sparkling wine and champagne extract (affiliate link). The extract is absolutely delicious and it really ups the flavor of the cake layers. I like to add some actual champagne into the cake layers, too! If you prefer to make a non-alcoholic version of this cake, just use some non-sweetened grape juice, or reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe.
The Strawberry Buttercream
The strawberry buttercream recipe is killer good, too! You’ll want to eat this frosting by the spoonful! I added a little bit of citric acid to make the buttercream a bit sour and tangy, which helps balance out the sweetness. A little tip for making berry buttercreams: make sure to add the fruit puree very last, after you get your frosting to the consistency you want it to be. Mix the fruit in for about 30 seconds, no longer; otherwise, the frosting can separate.
