Cinnamon Blueberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Cinnamon Blueberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

It’s no secret that I love blueberries.  I grew up in a house surrounded by blueberry bushes and eating them until my fingers turned purple.  Camping all summer long meant mornings waking up to Grandpa’s famous blueberry pancakes on the griddle. And Blueberry muffins hot from the oven is the only summer snack I ever need.

These Cinnamon Blueberry Cupcakes are soft and delicious and topped with delicious cream cheese frosting.  Because let’s face it, cream cheese frosting is incredible on just about anything.

    I love blueberries, too! All your blueberry selections look scrumptious. One of my favorites, though, is blueberry walnut pancakes with the real maple syrup.

    Question pertaining to wedding:

    I am looking to make a tiered cupcake stand for a few events that I am hosting and was wondering if you have any hints to where I can buy one (cheaper the better) or to make one?


    AND I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your ideas and recipes! Your an inspiration to us all 🙂

      You know I have one large tiered stand I bought online… and I wasn’t that impressed with it. And since I don’t cater very often I haven’t looked into them very much. Guess would be to just make one out of wood, pain it white and then you can trim the edges with ribbon of the color of the wedding!
