thing- aeration and removal of clumps- without making a mess.)

another 1/3 of dry. Finish with remaining wet and dry ingredients.
Careful not to overmix.

For the Buttercream
- Beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add maple syrup and sugar and beat until smooth.
- Cool cupcakes before frosting. Use a pastry bag fitted with a large
star and swirl around the outer part of cupcake and gradually come
inwards with each swirl.
- Decorate with blueberries.
