Red, White, and Blueberry Cakes 24


This was just for fun.  I bought some delicious blueberries, and as I was cruising around Pinterest I realized we are headed into Red, White and Blue territory.  Hooray summer!!

So, you know that I don’t make a successful from-scratch cupcake, but these were yummy using a strawberry cake mix.

They would also be fun for a holiday, or even for Father’s Day!!  A special cupcake for a special “fruitcake” in my life!  Ha, ha!  I love you, sweetheart!  Since he can’t eat chocolate cupcakes, we try to make exceptions.  

These were a great exception!!

Ingredients
  1. 1 strawberry cake mix, prepared according to package directions
  2. 1/2 c. butter, softened
  3. 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  4. 3 1/2 to 4 + cups powdered sugar
  5. 1 dash salt
  6. 1/3 cup blueberries, pureed
  7. fresh blueberries for topping
Instructions
  1. Bake strawberry cupcakes according to package directions.
  2. Set aside to cool.
  3. Mix butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add 3-3 1/2 cups powdered sugar and salt until right consistency. If you choose, set aside a small amount of frosting to use as a"white" dollop on top of the blueberry frosting.
  4. Puree blueberries. Be creative!!
  5. Add pureed blueberries to remainder of frosting and mix. At this point, you will want to add more powdered sugar. I added about 1/2 to 3/4 cup more powdered sugar. It will seem soft.
  6. Put frosting in fridge for about 30 minutes.
  7. Frost cupcakes and decorate!
Notes
  1. After frosting, I liked to keep these refrigerated until right before serving. Although I prefer my cupcakes room temperature, the frosting on these is best kept slightly cool.

I am not a cake decorator, but these turned out pretty!!  Although men don’t usually care if a cupcake looks pretty, they do like it to taste yummy!!
