Very Berry Blueberry Cupcakes

Blueberry blueberry blueberry! Need I say more? These cupcakes are made with a blueberry muffin mix, filled with a homemade blueberry jam, and topped with a cream cheese frosting (lightly flavored with some blueberry juice).
An excellent morning treat, my favorite part is the blueberry jam in the middle. I am new to making any sort of jam like substance, or syrup type thing, so this was a wild and crazy success. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

So don't forget to go shopping! Here's what you should pick up:
  • Frosting (I went with a cream cheese Betty Crocker. One tub or two tubs is up to you, I had too much left over!)
  • Blueberry Muffin Mix (Betty Crocker is a babe!)
  • Anything Betty Crocker tells you you'll need on the back of the box (She's so thoughtful!)
  • 1 Box of Blueberries (Or two if you're hungry!)
  • Sugar
  • Lemon Juice

Step 1: You Can't Use Muffin Mix in a Cupcake!

Well, I did. Breaking the muffin mold, so to speak. And onwards we go! Grab that box of Betty Crocker! Follow her instructions on the path to blueberry morning goodness. I had never used the blueberry mix before, so I was a little shocked to find that she does include a small can of blueberries just for the occasion. Isn't she swell? A couple of eggs, a little oil and milk, rinse the blue berries, add the cake powder...remember to stir gently, as though you were tucking each of those blueberries in for a good night's rest.

Step 2: Which Pan Do I Like Best?

Well, to be honest, both of them! I had enough cake mix to make 12 mini bundt cupcakes, and 6 larger standard cupcakes in a paper wrapping. It's nice having a little variety to play around with when it comes to decorating later.

Make sure you let the cupcakes cool completely before stuffing and decorating them! It's important to let them rest, they've been working so hard for you.
Yummers! Those sound delicious! Like blueberry muffins, but better :)
