Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread Cupcakes

Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread Cupcakes

This week the recipe of choice was Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread picked by Sherry Trifle. The recipe can be found at her link here

I was excited to make this one because I have never made gingerbread cake from scratch. I have made it from a box and made gingerbread cookies with Elmer's Glue for ornaments but this was my first shot at the real deal. I was pleasantly surprised that this was a very easy recipe to make. I choose to make cupcakes because my family has pretty much stopped eating my desserts and Chris was finishing up a class and cupcakes are of course the easiest way to transport sweets. 

They smelled wonderfully delicious baking and kept the house smelling great for a couple of hours after taking them out of the oven. I omitted the fresh ginger because I didn't have it but I did use candied ginger and it worked out great. 

The pictures aren't what I wanted, sorry, things have been crazy busy around here so I didn't get the time I wanted. I will work on it for next week! Next week is world peace cookies. I have been wanting to bake cookies so this will be nice....plus I could use just some "local" peace if I could catch a break ha ha!
