We make gingerbread every Christmas but I’ve never made gingerbread cupcakes before. They look super cute and since it’s Christmas it’s the perfect time to make them. We’ve still got left over gingerbread house left but you can’t have too much gingerbread at Christmas, right?

I found these gingerbread cake decorations in B&M in a set with gold stars, silver balls and silver sprinkles but you can find them online too. You could even make mini gingerbread men or use shop bought ones but I think these tiny decorations are cute!
