Chocolate Ginger Christmas Cupcakes by claremanson Chocolate Ginger Christmas Cupcakes by claremanson
A soft and fluffy subtly ginger gluten free cupcake with a smooth milk chocolate butter cream, topped with ginger and cinnamon star sugar cookies.

These cupcakes were so good! I have never used ginger in baking before but so glad I have started now! All I did was add 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground ginger to the cupcake mix and 1/2 teaspoon to the sugar cookie mix.  I finished off the cookies with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Holding my own Christmas Contest sure has got me into the spirit of Christmas Baking this year. To find out more about my contest, check out the following journal post.

Claremanson's Christmas ContestTheme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe.  Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
 
Rules and requirements:

You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form else your entry will not be included.
If what you you usually make isn't very Christmasy looking or tasting then why not try to add some more Christmas into your food by adding Christmas sprinkles onto candy and cupcakes, flavours such as cinnamon or cranberry, themed cupcake cases, festive shaped cookies etc.
You entry must be new for Christmas 2013.
It must be homemade, not shop bought.
Please state in your e

Do you have a link or something to all/any of your gluten free (or any vegan) foods you've made? :) My mom is gluten free and finds it hard to get really good gluten free cupcakes.
