Nothing says holidays like gingerbread. This holiday staple is always a hit at parties and celebrations and this recipe, with an optional substitution of crystalized ginger for ground ginger is sure to spice up any gathering. The frosting, a creamy sweet compliment to the spiced cake, can be dressed up for the party, or arrive simply adorned and be perfectly received either way. Adding holiday sprinkles, printed cupcake wraps, or fancy decorating techniques, while not necessary, will be the creative icing on the cake.

Oreo cookies are just what you need to turn your next baking spree into a cookies and cream bash. Simply make traditional vanilla cupcakes and add a cup and half of crushed Oreo cookies to turn them into something resembling the ice cream flavor. Once you’ve baked them, add more ground Oreo cookies to the frosting mix (along with standard ingredients like butter, vanilla, powdered sugar and milk.) After frosting each treat, add a mini Oreo cookie to the top in order to make them even more delectable.
