Before starting, preheat the oven to 400°F. Place 6 tbsp unsalted butter in the freezer for 10 min to harden. Wash and dry all produce. Prepare a parchment-lined baking sheet. Zest orange. Add dried cranberries and enough warm water to cover by 1/2 inch to a small bowl. Set aside. Whisk together flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 3 tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt in a large bowl. Whisk together three-quarters of the cream, egg, orange zest and 2 tsp honey in a medium bowl.
Remove butter from the freezer, then, using the largest side of a box grater, grate butter. Add grated butter to the bowl with flour mixture. Stir until butter is completely coated in flour. Drain cranberries. Add cream mixture and cranberries to the large bowl with butter and flour. Stir gently until combined. Using 2 large spoons, scoop batter onto the prepared baking sheet in 6 large mounds. Brush 2 tbsp milk onto muffin tops, then sprinkle 1 tsp sugar over each muffin top. Bake muffin tops in the middle of the oven until golden-brown, 15-18 min.
Meanwhile, juice half the orange. Cut remaining orange into segments. Halve grapes. Halve, peel, then cut kiwi into 1/2-inch half-moons. Core, then cut apple into 1/2-inch pieces. Whisk together orange juice and remaining honey in another large bowl. Add orange segments, grapes, apple and kiwi, then toss to combine.
Add cream cheese, remaining cream and 1 tsp sugar to another medium bowl. Using an electric mixer or hand whisk, beat until stiff peaks form, 1-2 min. Transfer whipped cream cheese mixture to a small dish. Divide cranberry-orange muffin tops and fruit salad between plates. Serve whipped cream cheese on the side.
