Gingerbread Cupcakes

Gingerbread Christmas Cupcake 1

I can’t believe it’s November already. Christmas will be here before we know it so I’ve started my Christmas baking.

First up are these beautiful little Gingerbread Cupcakes. I love gingerbread so I just had to make these. I must say they are very rich and decadent but so delicious. I topped mine with some Buttercream Frosting along with some edible pearls and gold lustre dust/glitter.

I think these would look lovely on any Christmas table but you could eat them anytime of the year.
