Recipe for Cupcakes with Rosé Buttercream Frosting to Celebrate Galentine's Day
Happy belated Galentine's Day!
What is Galentine's Day?
Galentine's Day is a holiday started based off of season 2 episode 16 of Parks & Recreation as a way for women to celebrate the other women in their life.
When is Galentine's Day?
Galentine's Day is on February 13th. The day before Valentine's Day.
Galentine's Day Gifts
Not only is it a great time to celebrate your friendships with women, but it's also a time that single women are able to join in the fun of Valentine's Day without a significant other. That means gifts are exchanged.
Depending on how many girls you're exchanging gifts with, it can really add up. So check out these 5 Galentine's Day gift ideas under $10!
5 Galentine's Day Gift Ideas Under $10
1. Homemade beauty products.
If you're really on a budget, going the DIY route is definitely cheapest. You can make easy homemade sugar scrubs with just a few ingredients that you probably already have around the house.
Who says a man needs to bring you flowers? Flowers are one of the simple gifts that always put a smile on my face.
You don't have to go crazy either. Grocery stores around Austin have dozen rose specials for less than $10.
Or you could go with a seasonal flower mix. It's the thought that counts, right?!
3. Fun accessories.
Think about all of those little quirky items you see online and in magazines. Grab some of those for your girls.
Think fun notebooks, makeup bags, or wine glasses. And you don't have to spend a ton.
Just hit up the dollar spot. That's where I got the wine glasses below!
For me, Galentine's = my gals + wine! Gift your girlfriends your favorite Llano Estacado Wines and have a Girl's Night In.

My Llano Estacado Wine pick for Galentine's Day is Rosé. I mean look at that color, nothing could be girlier and more refreshing!
You can always theme your Galentine's Day party by doing a pajama or spa party. Or, you could have a decorating party.
A cupcake decorating party! Now you can drink your wine and bake with it too!
Who isn't guilty of drinking while they bake? So why not add some of that wine to your dessert recipe too?
These boozy cupcakes are so simple to make but taste amazing. It's so easy to take a basic box of cake mix and really make it perfect your girl's night in!
Making the cupcakes is easy. It all starts with a boxed white cake mix and just swapping the water for Llano Estacado Rosé.
That's all you have to do to give the cupcakes a little extra flavor. Unfortunately, the wine does cook off while baking but don't worry, you'll be topping it with this Rosé Buttercream Frosting!
