While cupcakes are cooling, prepare the chocolate ganache frosting. In a small bowl, heat the cream in the microwave for a minute. Place chocolate chips in a small bowl and pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips letting it sit for a minute to melt. Stir the cream and chocolate together. Be patient, it will take a while to incorporate. Once it's fully blended and smooth set aside to let cool for at least five minutes. The chocolate will get thicker as it sits.
