Gingerbread Cupcake & Buttercream Recipe

Hi and welcome back to my kitchen. With the evenings drawing in and Christmas just around the corner I thought I would share a recipe that makes me feel Christmasy. I don’t know about you but whenever I smell gingerbread it just feels like Christmas!

In this video I give you the recipe for 12 gingerbread cupcakes and a gingerbread buttercream to pipe on the top. I finish off the cupcakes with small fondant gingerbread men.

I hope you love the recipe.

The ingredients you will need to make 12 cupcakes is:

7oz / 200g – Butter

I bake them on the middle shelf of my oven at 180 degrees, 350 degrees fahrenheit or gas mark 4 for 22 – 24 minutes.
