Lavender Blueberry Cupcakes

January 20, 2012
I’m the ultimate girly-girl.  I love pink, I love fashion, I love baking, I love chick flicks, I love flowers, and I love chocolate.  I’m not the kind-of girl that you’ll catch playing video games or watching action movies.  It’s just not me.  But if you want to go shopping, or watch Sex and the City all day, I’m there!
One thing that I really enjoy doing is incorporating some of my girly tendencies into my baking.  I love pink and sparkly desserts, and treats that appeal to most woman.  This is one of those desserts.  They are Blueberry Cupcakes topped with a Lavender Buttercream. 
The starting point of these cupcakes is the blueberry flavor.  Blueberries are heated up in the microwave before being incorporated into the cupcake batter; this allows the cupcakes to turn a bluish/purple color.   The cupcakes are then topped with a lavender buttercream, where dried French Lavender buds are scattered throughout the sweet buttercream.   
Of course not just woman will enjoy these cupcakes.  Everyone will love the sweet and aromatic flavor of these delicious cupcakes!

    Oh, I’ve had a Blueberry Lavender frosting recipe saved now for a while, but this solves the issue of what kind of cake I’d use for it.  Such a lovely recipe!
