#4: Blue Blueberry N Cream

In September, I started a cupcake adventure. If you haven't read about it yet, you can do so here. ***

There's something fantastic about adding real fruit to a recipe. And with Blue Blueberry N Cream Cupcakes, you start with a cup of frozen, defrosted blueberries.

Then you cream together the butter and sugar, add the juicy berries, and bake.

Breathe deeply as the smell of freshly baked blueberry cupcakes fills your kitchen. Yum.

This was my first time using whipping cream for the icing and it did NOT work out well for me. I had it completely chilled, but I guess I should've gone a step further and stuck my beaters and bowl in the fridge for a while before using them. Instead, I got a milky, blueberry pool.

So, what do you do? DIP THEM!

Luckily, whipping cream is thick enough to coat a cupcake, even if it doesn't set up. So I dipped each one and let the excess drip off a little.
