When Tia said she was going to make a gingerbread cupcake, I sneered. I scoffed. I huffed and said “Who likes gingerbread? I mean you’re forced to at Christmas time, but why would someone choose to eat it?” Boy, was I wrong.
People couldn’t get enough of it. People who usually pass up sweets and baked treats, were grabbing for this spiced creation. They were raving about the moistness of the cake and how the frosting wasn’t “too sweet.” Even when I followed it up with “You’d choose this over a classic chocolate cake?” There response was quick and a unanimous “hands down.” (I have to admit it was a pretty good cupcake. And I love chocolate.)
If you are trying to find a different cake to serve your friends who aren’t into desserts, you might want to try this one.
Rating: Surprisingly (to me) Delish
Tia’s Note: I doubled this recipe as I was making it for my team, but there really was no need as it made a TON! Also, don’t fill all the way to the top like the recipe says, I would recommend 1/2 to 3/4. Other than that, they turned out great and very yummy! They were a BIG hit!
