~Drunken Gingerbread Men Cupcakes!

Look at how much fun those little guys are having! :)

These are adult cupcakes for sure, considering they have over a cup of Rum mixed into them..yep that's right! :)

There's nothing quite like a cocktail and dessert all in one!  Actually, the rum flavor ends up being very subtle, but adds a great background flavor and a moistness to the spicy cake!
This is such a fun twist on a usual favorite..give them a try!

Can't go wrong with this combo!!

What you'll need:
1 box of Spice Cake Mix
1 container of Vanilla Frosting
1 tsp. Ground Ginger
Gingerbread Cookies (1 for each cupcake)
Rum ( enough to replace the water in your cupcake recipe)
Chopped Candied Ginger (in small pieces) not shown.
Prepare your cupcakes according to the box instructions, but replace the water with Rum!
Stir the ground ginger into the batter, and fill your cupcake liners...bake as usual!
Poor little guy! 

When the cupcakes have cooled, frost them and sprinkle the tops with the candied ginger.  Add the Gingerbread Men in 'drunken-like' postions on top of each cupcake, get creative..lol!  
These are so moist, spicy, sweet and delicious!!
~Enjoy!  :)
