By request, here is my Gingerbread Cupcake recipe

Gingerbread Cupcakes, 12-16pcs.
250g butter (chopped)
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ¼ cups white flour
¾ cup milk

1 tablespoon milk

0.5 teaspoon Cloves
0.5 teaspoon Ginger
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
Sprinkles or other decorations of your own choice



Gingerbread Cream Cheese Frosting
200g cream cheese softened
200g butter (room temperature)
3-4 dl's of powdered sugar
Crushed Gingerbread cookies
2 teaspoons of vanilla


Directions:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Place the cupcake liners (this recipe made roughly 20 Cupcakes) on the baking tray.Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl, using an electric mixer, until pale and creamy. 

Add the eggs, one at a time and also beat in the vanilla, spices and milk.
Lightly fold the flour into the creamy mixture. 
Layer the batter in the liners gently. 
Bake in the lower part of the owen for around 20 minutes and then place them on a wire rack to cool for about 1 hour.

Now make the icing in a small bowl. Start with grinding the gingerbread cookies into tiny crumbles. Then add the rest of the ingredients, mixing them all together with an electric mixer and pipe it onto your cupcakes.
Finish off with your desired decorations..... Voilaaaaa!
