    2. Add the vanilla and combine thoroughly.
    3. Add the cream a Tablespoon at a time until your frosting is very light and fluffy and the correct consistency.
    4. Using a large serrated icing tip and pipe the frosting onto cupcakes.
    5. Garnish the cupcakes with the crumbled Biscoff cookies.

    Recipe Notes

    This recipe makes a lot of frosting; enough to pipe a relatively large amount onto each cupcake. Should you choose to simply spread icing on cupcakes; you can halve the ingredients and make less. Or make it all and save the rest for eating on graham crackers or my favorite...with a spoon. ?
