Decorate the cupcakes with edible flowers. Very beautiful are white flowers, for example basil, melissa or elderflower.
Fancy pink cupcakes? Then replace the blueberries with raspberries. Outside the blueberry or raspberry season, it is best to take frozen fruits. If the kernels are disturbing, simply brush the fruit through a fine sieve after cooking.
