I hope you are enjoying all the Christmas goodies I am sharing with you. I know my family is enjoying eating them all 🙂 If you missed them, last week on Cupcake Tuesday, I shared Holly Cupcakes.

One of my favorite books, is Martha Stewart’s Cupcake Book, today I’m sharing my version of her Gingerbread Cupcakes.

 I baked the Gingerbread Cookies and decided to share them in the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies that I have been posting everyday, so that this post wasn’t super long.
