I found this recipe online, I do not remember the site. These cupcakes were just ok. They were not bad by any means, however, they are not quite up to par on any of the others that I made. I did not use the frosting recipe bur made my own. I used fresh blueberries that I pureed and then gently mixed it into my generic cream cheese frosting. The frosting had a hint of blueberry in it and was fantastic.

The cupcakes on the other hand were a bit dry and were more like a sponge cake. I will need to find a new recipe for the cupcake on my next iteration. Once I have the “go to” recipe, I will update this post.
