Blueberry Cupcakes with Orange Curd and White Chocolate Buttercream


It’s Super Bowl 50, which means you’re gonna see roughly a million and a half posts with cutesy-colored football cakes, “bro” snacks, and other assorted Super Bowl recipes to slowly engorge yourself with while Coldplay lip-synchs something during the halftime show. With all of that action, how could I not get a slice? Even though Denver isn’t my home state, I get it. I hear Peyton Manning’s real good at throwing the ol’ football around, and I’m sure all the other people on that team are real good too. But c’mon, we all know what this is about for me (and likely some of you)…the food. So get yourself in the kitchen, bake up some blueberry cupcakes, and focus on what really matters.
