Baking Monday – Gingerbread Cupcakes

By request: something Christmas-y with frosting. These gingerbread cupcakes with cinnamon buttercream were super yummy.

I used my large scoop to fill the cupcake papers and they poofed up over the edge of the pan, boo. Filling the papers about halfway would probably be about right. I made cinnamon buttercream instead of cream cheese frosting, because that's my preference (1 stick softened butter, 4 cups sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, add milk until piping consistency) and the cinnamon flavor was juuuuust right. Gingerbread isn't usually a favorite of mine, but the icing really sold these for me.

Plus, I had an excuse to buy cinnamon jellybeans (the BEST flavor, in my opinion!)
