WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Here's a sweet way to ring in the new year-forget the champagne toast, try a champagne cupcake instead!

The crew at Coastal Cupcakes has come up with an original recipe of champagne cupcakes just for the new year. Satisfied customers say they taste as good as they look. But the cupcakes are a special edition, and they're selling fast.

Kristen Beckmeyer, the co-owner of the store, says it could be because the cupcakes are really made with real champagne.

"We only bring these cupcakes out 1 or 2 times a year, so it's a special cupcake. Its made with champagne in the cupcake and frosting, so it gets that little bubbly feeling to it."

The champagne cupcakes will only be available from Coastal Cupcakes Thursday and Friday. The best chance of getting some is by calling ahead and placing an order.
