To make the cupcakes: Whisk 3/4 cup of the all-purpose flour, the cake flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, toss the blueberries with the remaining 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar and lime zest - rub together with your fingertips until fragrant. Add the butter to the bowl and cream on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in the vanilla and lime juice. With the mixer on low, alternately add the flour mixture and milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Beat just until incorporated. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter with a rubber spatula.
Divide the batter evenly between the prepared liners, filling each about 3/4 full. Bake 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer the pans to a wire rack and cool the cupcakes for 5 minutes before removing them from the pans to the rack to cool completely.
To make the frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Beat in the lime juice and zest.

Frost the cooled cupcakes, and garnish with additional blueberries.
