Gee, Gingerbread Men Get A Little Tipsy

18 Dec

Fancy red ribbons, delicate lights, tacky sweaters, fresh pine trees…it is truly the most wonderful time of the year. Last night, my roommate Kelsey and I decided to share our cheerful holiday spirit by hosting a Christmas get-together at our apartment.

Christmas Tree

We set up our little tree, hung up the mistletoe, and of course prepared an array of yummy treats. The stars of the evening were the “Drunken Gingerbread Men Cupcakes” prepared with a simple recipe from All you really have to do is prepare cupcakes with a box of spice cake mix and substitute rum for water. We decided to use spiced rum instead of water, and then added a bit of cinnamon for some extra flavor. I personally believe that cinnamon makes (almost) everything taste better. Garnish with mini gingerbread men in various stances and voila!

These little guys might have to become a new Christmas tradition.
