Honey Cornmeal Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream

I think it’s safe to say I’m not the best cupcake baker.

There are a few things I need to learn about baking in higher altitudes and with honey but these are just too pretty {and delicious despite being flat} not to share.

I made these honey cornmeal cupcakes weeks ago for a friend’s birthday.  I’ve been meaning to make them again to perfect the recipe, the dry to wet ingredients were a bit off balance, but I’ve barely had time to shower this summer let alone test out this recipe over and over again.

Every time I go to organize another post or edit pictures there these cupcakes are.  Staring at me.  The lovely fabric swatch, the dripping honey, the blackberry buttercream.  Aw dang.  I just gotta do it.

So this is me warning you ahead of time that if you make the cupcakes they will flatten and, if left to sit on the counter, will become a bit moist as opposed to staying fluffy and light.  Of course, if you eat them as soon as they are done then you have nothing to worry about!
