Festive Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Gingerbread Cupcakes recipe

Gingerbread is a delicious treat this time of year! I wanted to share it with our Girl Scout troop in a way that would be appealing to the younger girls. This Gingerbread Cupcake recipe from Allrecipes.com was just right! I made a double batch which ended up giving me exactly 3 dozen cupcakes. I did not overfill the muffin tins because they are for a light snack at the beginning of our meeting. Still, they are a nice size without being huge.

I also used a different frosting recipe,  the one included didn’t sound quite like what I was looking for. The cute cupcake liners and decorative picks were found at the Dollar Tree at $1.00 for a pack of 24, can’t beat that! I had picked up the adorable Gingerbread marshmallows at Walmart last month and forgotten about them until I was digging through the cupboard looking for a topping. They were the perfect touch! I ate the one mangled one just to be sure they tasted good and I think the girls will like them. If they were for adults only I’d almost say to add a bit more of each spice but they are good as is.
