You may be wondering how I achieved such a delicious looking color or think I had to use a lot of food coloring. NOPE! No food coloring. I’ve discovered a new way of making my frosting, and that’s by using freeze dried fruit! Not to be confused with dried fruit. Here’s what I did…..Simply pour the freeze dried fruit in a blender and blend until the fruit is in powder form.
Since blueberries have a mild flavor I felt the frosting needed another blueberry boost. That came in the form of blueberry flavor. I used LorAnn. They have an amazing selection of flavors and oils. You can order your bottle here—->>>>BLUEBERRY FLAVOR
- 2 (1.2 ounce) bags freeze dried blueberries
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 ( 8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 (.125 ounce) bottle blueberry flavor (LorAnn)
- 5 cups confectioners' sugar
For the Freeze Dried Blueberries:
Pour berries into a blender and pulse until the berries are in powder form.
For the Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting:
In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and cream cheese. Mix until smooth. Add blueberry powder, vanilla and blueberry flavor. Mix until incorporated. Add confectioners' sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing between each addition. Once all the sugar is incorporated mix on medium high until frosting is light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Frost cooled cupcakes. Store frosted cupcakes in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
