These cupcakes were born from an idea I had last Halloween, for Booberry and White Shockolate Cookies. I liked the whole playing with words thing and decided to stick with the Booberry (blueberry) but mix it with Slime (lime). These flavours would go well together in a cupcake I thought.
I based the mix on a simple vanilla cupcake recipe from BBC Food and added fresh blueberries and the zest and juice of one lime (plus some green food colouring).The cupcakes were rather delicious on their own, but to give the full garish effect I added some vanilla buttercream, dyed purple, to match the busted berries in the cakes.
I found some googly eyes on picks to add to the cupcakes. I think the group of them together look like a wee gang of aliens (what is the name for a group of aliens?).
