Blueberry Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Once upon a time, I made a batch of Blueberry Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting, and then ate them all. Okay, maybe not all. My husband and toddler were also involved in the mass cupcake consumption in our home. Every last crumb was gone. Because these cupcakes were deliciously soft, moist and comprised of little bursts of blueberry sweetness. May they reside in cupcake heaven happily ever after. Okay that sounds weird, maybe it’s the sugar overload talking in me?

But there’s also one more reason that I’m so excited and so in love with today’s recipe: It’s my first post as part of Yum of the Month which is a new monthly challenge I’m participating in. The Yum of the Month is a monthly recipe challenge that I’ve teamed up to do with four fabulous food bloggers.

The way this recipe challenge works is that each month a member decides on a theme for the month, and all of the members have to make a recipe around that theme. This month’s theme (the very first one!) was fresh fruit.
