3 stars, really good & tasty! I got 15 cupcakes that fell slightly in the centers, making them harder to dip in the Godiva liqueur---I suggest doubling the baking soda. I added more cream & gobs more liqueur & beat until light & fluffy---frosting was absolutely delicious then! I kept them overnight frosted, in an air tight container at room temp & the frosting looked "OK", so I'd either keep uncovered or wait to frost.
