Gingerbread Cupcakes

Gingerbread Cupcakes

Gingerbread is most thought of around the Christmas season, but we’re milking this chilly weather flavor for everything we can with these gingerbread cupcakes. The cakes are a retake on classic sponge cake, enhanced by a little brown sugar, caramel and yummy spices. Top this combination with a cream cheese frosting to die for, and there’s no doubt friends and family will forget all about gingerbread’s Christmas connotation.

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Christmas may have come and gone, but as long as chilly weather remains, the season for gingerbread lives on. As it gets colder and we look for more filling treats, gingerbread cupcakes fit the bill pretty darn well. These cupcakes include a delightful blend of warm, winter spices and a heavy dose of molasses for a treat that promises to be as soft and warm as your favorite cozy blanket. If you’re up for topping them with tiny gingerbread people, we absolutely will not judge you, but if you’re not into gingerbread shapes after the holidays, these cupcakes can still provide a delicious treat for colder months.

Poop Emoji Cupcakes

Poop Emoji Cupcakes

No one likes Monday, so it’s only appropriate we share these poop emoji cupcakes on a Monday, right? Yes, they really are edible cupcakes. When you say the name, say it really fast, because no one wants to focus on the idea of eating poop. Instead, focus on the amazing taste and remarkable resemblance to their namesake. The cupcake name is pretty self-explanatory for anyone who’s ever used a smart phone, but the taste is so wonderful it’s more difficult to find words to accurately describe them. Whipping up a batch is won’t take any time at all, and decorating them is sure to cure the Monday blues!
