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?
