"My 4* rating is based on taste......... I had high hopes for these cupcakes, and for taste it delivered, but presentation wasn't very pretty! I did make one substitution and that was replacing the whipping cream for half & half + 1 tblsp butter...I've made this substitution in other recipes but I don't think this one can tolerate it. I think the "lava" was too thin because of it (toothpaste consistency). I ended up piping it into the center of the cupcakes which worked well- no run over like some other reviews wrote. To salvage these for Easter dinner I put them into a 9x13 pan and frosted them as a cake and dessert was served! Very moist and everyone agreed they will be on the dessert menu again! I have 2 standard Wilton cupcake pans and it made 21 cupcakes- a few were a little bigger than I would have liked- so the next time I make this recipe ........ following it to the letter without any substitutions :) I will bake them into 24 cupcakes- Perfect!"
