Lemon Cupcakes and Lavender Blueberry Lemonade

These cupcakes may not be very attractive, but they were so yummy! I quickly improvised on this recipe when I realized that I had nothing for dessert planned for tonight. Due to a shortage of milk and cupcake pans I had to divide the recipe into 'a little less than half', which got a bit tricky. Regardless, nothing with lemon as the main ingredient can come out too horribly, and despite their rustic appearance they were very delicate and delicious.

Instead of the buttercream frosting used in the original recipe, I decided to make use of the rest of our cream cheese and make lemon cream cheese frosting instead.

To keep with the lemon theme I decided to make Lavender Lemonade with the leftover Lavender Syrup I had made a few days ago. I added a few frozen blueberries to give it a Lavender-like hue, since the syrup itself is clear.
