Blueberry Cupcakes for the End of Summer

I have been meaning to post these pictures for a while as I made the cupcakes some time ago, when there was still a whiff of summer in the air. I have two children at home, one of whom loves blueberries, the other who loathes them. However he does love a good cake, so I thought I'd see if he would eat the blueberries in cake form. He ate them very happily (but still refuses to eat them any other way).

I tried two different versions. The first was a vanilla cake with the bluberries stirred through, then decorated with blueberry buttercream. The other was a vanilla cake with a hole cut of the centre and filled with cooked blueberries, and then decorated with lemon buttercream. 

My personal preference was the lemon buttercream version, but the vote was split.
