Lemon Cupcake with Blackberry Buttercream

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
The cupcake itself is awesome and relatively simple. (This was my first cupcake from scratch) The frosting needs some work.... It's really sweet, REALLY SWEET. I didn't add all of the sugar it called for and next time I will use fresh blackberries instead of the jam. I had a little bit of frosting left and squished up a blackberry into it to see how it would taste and it was much better and kicked up the the berry flavor tremendously. I will be making these again, just with some changes to the frosting. :)

Orange Date Muffins

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
These muffins were well received by everyone who tasted them. However, I changed some things in the recipe (which is why I only gave it 4 stars). I zested the orange, discarded the rind (white part) and food processed the inside. I also upped the sugar to about 2/3 C (maybe a little less), and added cinnamon and nutmeg. This recipe NEEDS cinnamon and it gives the muffins a great smell. I will totally be making these again. If you don't really care for orangey things, don't make these little guys.
