These easy gingerbread cupcakes are so special and fun to make! It all starts with a boxed spice cake!
Well was 12/12/12 lucky for you? It was a pretty good day for me. I got a lot done around the house. Did you know that this Saturday is National Cupcake Day? What better way to celebrate with some Gingerbread Cupcakes?
1 box spice cake mix
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup molasses
1/3 cup oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients in bowl. Pour into lined muffin/cupcake tin. Bake according to cake mix directions.
Cream cheese frosting
1 stick butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 block cream cheese (low fat ok)
3 Tablespoons milk (low fat ok)
Cream together with hand mixer or stand mixer. on low – medium speed When combined, whip on high for about a minute. I like to frost mine in a circular motion with a star tip.
Then I added some sprinkles.
And remember the Gingerbread Drop cookies from earlier this week? I rolled out the other half of the dough and made gingerbread men cookies.
When they cooled I decorated the cookies.
And when I was done, I added these to the cupcake as toppers.
I just love gingerbread cookies, cupcakes and lattes. Do you like gingerbread? What is your favorite gingerbread recipe?
