Gingerbread cupcakes & what frosting?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

What frosting would you pair with a gingerbread cupcake?  I've seen vanilla bc & cream cheese.  Anything else?  What's your favorite pairing?

Thanks, Mary

With Gingerbread...a honey flavour would be good (made a gingerbread cheesecake with honey flavoured cookie cutouts on top last year...was a big hit)

I most commonly pair gingerbread cupcakes with caramel buttercream. It is delicious!

There's always an occasion for cake.

This one. It reminds me of soft vanilla ice cream. I use it on strongly flavored cupcakes...Deep Dark Chocolate, Swiss Mocha, Pumpkin Spice...I think it would be great on gingerbread.

Wow, these are great!  I would have never thought of orange or egg-nog.  Keep them coming!  Thanks, Mary

Maybe try a Maple Syrup Frosting?

Like that one?
I haven't tried it, but I think the flavours would go nicely, n__n
