The holiday season is now, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate than with delicious cupcakes! This year I wanted to make a flavor that screamed Christmas. That is when I came up with the idea for Gingerbread Cupcakes!
Gingerbread was never a huge tradition in my household as a child, but I do remember a few years making gingerbread houses. My mother, sister and I would make the gingerbread cookie dough and cut the pieces out in the shape of a house to make the base of the house. We would use crushed up jolly ranchers to make stained glass windows and candy canes, gumdrops, and m&ms to decorate the outside of our gingerbread house.
These gingerbread cupcakes are packed with spice and topped with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting. As a final touch, I placed a little gingerbread sprinkle on top of each cupcake. Everyone that has tried these cupcakes rave about how delicious they are. Make them this holiday season and let me know what you, your friends and your family think about these gingerbread cupcakes below in the comments!
