School has started again at University of Michigan, and I though there was no better way to commemorate the occasion than by making Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes. Get it University of Michigan’s colors are Maize and Blue, Blueberry and Lemon, Blue and Maize, get it? Anywho, this is my last first day of school for a long time and I am super excited. So, here goes the recipe.
