To make the blueberry syrup: heat sugar, water, and lemon juice on stove until the sugar dissolves.

Allow the blueberry syrup to cool.

Preheat oven to 365.

Remove the cream from the Oreos.

Line cupcake pan.

Place one side/half of Oreo on the bottom of each cupcake tin.

For cupcake batter: blend yellowcake mix, instant pudding pack, 3 eggs, cup of water, and vegetable oil on low speed, then high speed for about two minutes.

Fold in most of the blueberry syrup, saving some for the icing. Makes for pretty lavender icing.
