Purple is my favorite color so of course these blackberry cupcakes made me swoon

Fake Ginger has won me over again with these angel food cupcakes with blackberry buttercream - I'll admit that the matching frosting and cupcake wrappers drew my attention first, but I also am a fan of angel food (so light!) and I like the way the blackberry is just nestled right there on top of the cupcake, as if it's made to fit there.

The frosting is perfection. It’s a little tart from the lemon juice but still really sweet like a good buttercream should be. Once again, I wouldn’t recommend piling it on the angel food cupcakes like I did but a small dollop would be perfect. And yes, I did add food coloring. Blackberry puree is a really bright pink that normally would be really pretty so there’s really no need for food coloring.
