Blueberry Lemonade Cupcakes – A Splash of Flavour
Blueberry lemonade cupcakes are the perfect treat to share this spring and summer. After all, summer is fast approaching! Maybe not quick enough for some of my readers. But don’t worry it’s on the way. That means countless opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy your yards and decks and campsites and Recreational vehicles too. And of course there’s so much entertaining.
But if you are at all like me you always wonder what to serve. These sweet and tart cupcakes will go beautifully at any picnic, bake sale or cupcake worthy event. I mean any excuse to eat scrumptious cupcakes, right?
Summer is not so far off. That means pool parties and birthday parties and barbecues and Father’s Day and so many great occasions to celebrate! I look forward to serving some of these in the summer months back by my pool. Maybe for the end of the year pool party, a new tradition the kids started last year. Obviously these Blueberry Lemonade Cupcakes beg to be served with a pitcher of ice cold lemonade. If your kids are older and really inspired they could set these up with a lemonade stand and sell both for fun and or for charity.
These Blueberry Lemonade Cupcakes could be perfect for a picnic too! I love the flavour combination of sweet and tangy. It’s pretty much perfect in my opinion. Garnish with a thin slice of lemon and serve.
