Christmas all year

For all of you who doesn’t want to leave Christmas behind but feel it’s time to cut down on the gingerbread, these cupcakes are perfect! Cause everyone knows that muffins are socially accepted to eat all year long, right!? And you can’t really balme someone for using gingerbread spices in cupcakes.

In addition to these super delicious gingerbread cupcakes, I have planned to make saffron buns (obviously), saffron mud cake, Christmas candy and a plain moist gingerbread cake.
