The ultimate combination of holiday flavors! Super-moist gingerbread cupcakes topped with orange mascarpone frosting.
These cupcakes are what a holiday cupcake should be. They are soft, light, and taste exactly like a gingerbread man cookie! How can you say no to that?
If you are a baker who loves to turn your favorite flavors into something amazing, then you are going to appreciate these spicy, molasses filled gingerbread cupcakes.
Even without the frosting, these cupcakes are packed with flavor. To complement their sweet gingery flavor is orange infused frosting. While most people celebrate the holidays with candy cane filled recipes, I celebrate with orange. I simply can’t get enough of this bright, juicy fruit.
I used mascarpone cheese as the base for the frosting. It’s light and velvety texture make it perfect for frosting. And it’s a better option than butter packed frostings.
Gingerbread and orange is the ultimate combination when it comes to holiday dessert. These cupcakes are some of the best I’ve ever made.
Make them for your office party, family Christmas dinner, for friends and neighbors. I’m positive you will get rave compliments!
