The blue velvet star on top of this blue velvet cupcake takes it from your average cream cheese frosted cupcake to a very special one! It's from food blog Sprinkle Bakes (via EpiCute), where you can find out how to get the perfect shade of blue and the recipe, adapted from a Paula Deen recipe.
She also links to two other bloggers baking blue velvet cupcakes using the same recipe, so I thought I'd share those cupcakes and links too:
