Recipe Notes 

Leftover cupcakes can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. 

You can create a home-made piping bag for the frosting by cutting the corner off of a plastic baggie. Fill the baggie with the icing and then squeeze it out in a circular motion onto each cupcake, building upward, through the hole in the corner.

Half and half can be substituted for the heavy cream.
