Blueberry Compote and Lemon Vanilla Bean Cupcakes

It's summer time ya'll well almost. I'd like for it to be summer already. So in celebration of this fine sunny day outside of my tiny apartment, I made these cupcakes to refresh myself with the hope of summer. The moist cake features fresh vanilla bean and a light lemon flavoring. The blueberry compote is heavenly, just the right texture and sweetness topped with a lemon buttercream frosting! I used my wilton jumbo cupcake pan for these which worked excellently, which was a plus due to me not having much luck with wilton baking pans. You will want to eat these with a dish and fork, as they demand elegance. Now I am off to enjoy my hard-work while I listen to David Bowie and dream of more sunny days such as today.
