Gingerbread Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting

It just wouldn’t be Christmas with out Gingerbread treats. I’ve made Gingerbread cookies many many times, but Gingerbread cupcakes have been on my to-do list for quite a while.

I made these Gingerbread Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting for my booth at the PTA Holiday Bazaar and they were a top seller.  The cupcakes smell fantastic and are extremely moist. I was on the fence with the Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting;  after taking a “poll” I decided to go with it. Boy am I glad I did, the brown sugar complimented the gingerbread perfectly.

Since my biggest customers at the PTA Holiday Bazaar were kids I decided to make mini cupcakes. This recipe made approximately 60 mini cupcakes. If want to make mini cupcakes, simply  reduce the baking time to 10- 12 minutes.

    Gingerbread is one of my all time favorites for the holiday, and I love the way gingerbread makes the house smell. It’s sad that it stays hidden for a year…..Thank you for sharing at Foodie Friends Friday. This one is for sure getting pinned.
