Sweet Sunday: Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (Blogmas Day 21)

21 December 2014

We recently baked these Christmas cupcakes for a yummy festive treat. Emilia got ridiculously excited when I whipped out the ingredients and her little apron! This time we opted for gingerbread cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I have baked gingerbread cookies before...I've even once baked a gingerbread house from scratch! But never a gingerbread cupcake. I knew either way I'd be won over by the cream cheese frosting (whack cream cheese frosting on pretty much anything and it tastes like heaven!) but I was surprised by how savoury these tasted. Without the frosting they could pass as a breakfast muffin! If you love Christmas flavours & spices then you will adore these. You can find the recipe from the Betty Crocker Big Book of Cupcakes here!

Happy Baking!



  1. That gingerbread cookie spatula is the cutest! My Lili Sophia is 11 months old, and I simply cannot wait till she is old enough to bake with me and enjoy it...just as I did with my older girls who are now 20 and 15. :)

  2. The cupcakes look heavenly. Cream cheese frosting is by far my favourite frosting, but who doesn't love it?!


Please be nice...the world could use some positivity! :)
