EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To save time and for easy clean-up substitute whipped cream topping (from aerosol can) for the whipping cream.

To bring these cupcakes to a gathering, transport the cupcakes without the whipped cream and garnish. Pack the cream and garnish in a cooler, and add when you arrive.
