MSC Cupcake Club - Gingerbread Cupcakes


This time of year is so crazy for me and I feel like I have been living in my kitchen working on holiday baking...and it shows no signs of letting up!! I love it though!

I had a Christmas party at my house last night and I made the Gingerbread Cupcakes to put on my dessert platter and they went over really well. I halved the recipe and made them in mini cupcakes as you can see. Mine got a little bit of a crunchy top on top (maybe because I made the smaller version) and it was actually really nice. It kind of gave an initial crunch like a cookie but then they were super moist inside.

I have never been a big fan of gingerbread but these surprised me. I could handle making these again sometime.

Thanks again to Kayte from Grandma's Kitchen Table for picking a great recipe!!

The results on these were so mixed so I'm glad they turned out well for you. I gave mine to my mom so I didn't try them, but she really enjoyed them! Love your minis - they look perfect!

Speaking as someone who is creative frosting impaired, this looks absolutely amazing. I love the red & green sprinkles.

I really like your little mini versions and the sound of crunchiness got my attention...I just love crunchy things! You did such a nice job of icing them.

I made standard cupcakes and also experienced hardened tops. It is definitely the fault of the recipe.

My co-workers weren't fans of these and I blamed it on Martha. ;)

Thanks so much for baking along with us this month! Happy Holidays!
