Gingerbread houses are an annual Holiday Staple for many families. There is nothing that excites kids more than sitting in front of a carefully constructed fragrant house made out of cookies with a bag of overly sweet icing and bowls full of every type of colorful, sugar packed candy imaginable. But have you had Gingerbread Cupcakes? Gingerbread is a sweet food product flavored with ginger, and uses honey or molasses rather than just sugar. I prefer to use molasses, it’s what gives a good gingerbread recipe it’s deep earthy caramel like tones. Gingerbread foods vary, ranging from a soft, moist loaf cake to something resembling a ginger cookie.
