That Frosting Really Takes These To a Whole New Level Of Amazing!
Here’s a dessert that is so cute, you almost don’t want to eat it! Who am I kidding… I could eat a whole batch of these gorgeous mini gingerbread cupcakes any day, and that’s why I make these year ’round. I don’t care if people think gingerbread is a flavor that should be enjoyed during holiday season alone. I happen to think these are way too delicious to make just once a year!
As if the gingerbread cupcakes weren’t tasty enough on their own, this recipe includes a mouth-watering cinnamon cream cheese frosting. So, if you really do feel like gingerbread is too Christmassy for the summer months, you can still use the frosting recipe for other cupcakes, or maybe even a layered cake. Don’t you just love 2-in-1 recipes? I know I do!
You know what I do, to make these mini cupcakes even more delightful? I add a splash of dark rum to the batter. Yes, rum! It makes these super flavorful!
