  1. Oh wow! These look so good. I was thinking about doing some baking this week, definitely going to have to try this recipe out. I love gingerbread… but gingerbread cupcakes sound EVEN better! They turned out great – you should be very happy with them! The mini gingerbread men on top really add to them, so cute.


  2. I was wondering of how delicious this would be since you posted in Twitter now I see this and it feels my original feelings of falling in love with cupcakes back when I was 13 years old! Would try it at summer vacation cause #nursingschoolprobs
