1tbs baking soda

Method for Cupcakes:
Preheat the oven to 190° / Gas Mark 4 and line a cupcake tin with 12 cupcakes paper cases.
Put the butter and sugar in a large bowl and cream together until the dough has a frothy and smooth texture. Add the egg, then pour in the plain yogurt and the dried blueberries. Blend well with a whisk.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking powder and salt into the bowl. Mix for 2 minutes at a low speed using an electric mixer. Once the mixture appears light and fluffy, spoon it into liners until they are 2/3 full.
Place into the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until risen. They should be golden in colour and firm to the touch.
Remove the cupcakes from the oven and chill, leaving them in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter with the icing sugar. Split open the vanilla pod and sift in the vanilla seeds. Alternatively, pour in a few drops of vanilla extract. Add milk to soften, if necessary. Add in a few drop of violet food colouring. Continue to mix until well combined, then pour the mixture into a piping bag with a star nozzle.
Once the cupcakes are completely cool, frost them using the piping bag. Top with one or two blueberries. Arrange on 3 Tier vintage style cupcake stand.
Serve the cupcakes immediately or seal them in an airtight container and put them in the refrigerator for a maximum of two days.
