"I made these today for a 4th of July cookout and they were all anyone talked about! I actually split the batter into 3 parts and did the cupcake part red (bottom layer), white (middle layer) and blue (top layer). I used a french vanilla cake batter instead of the white cake also. And I used the heavy whipping cream for the frosting (not milk). They were adorable (ALOT of pictures got taken of them!) and the most delicious cupcakes I have ever had! I am not big on cupcakes because they are usually too sweet. These were absolutely perfect, and the fruit on top was a great contrast to the mild sweetness of the cupcake. I couldn't stop eating the frosting, and I HATE frosting! I will make these cupcakes (in different variations of colors, fruits on tops, etc) for all future events. I highly recommend them and absolutely LOVE them!!! For the people who said that their icing was runny, the only thing I can think of is that you possibly melted the butter too much? I accidentally melted the butter the first time and then put the 2 sticks in the microwave (with the paper still on them), microwaved them for 10 seconds at a time and then turned them once (I did this 4 times) until the bottoms was just softened. I didn't even sift the powdered sugar and the frosting came out absolutely perfect."
