Blend butter , peanut butter and vanilla with mixer, then blend in sugar. Add cream until desired consistency obtained (begin one tablespoon at a time).

Note: The cupcakes sink when cooled so use the frosting to level them and make them prettier. Kelly also suggests these Variations:

Nutella instead of peanut butter (for those with peanut allergy). You may choose raspberry preserves. If using preserves eliminate sugar from the cheesecake filling. Increase bake time on raspberry variation by 5 minutes.
