Easy Gingerbread Cupcakes With Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Nothing smells better or more like winter than gingerbread. I absolutely love gingerbread everything from slime, bath bombs, sugar scrubs, cookies and cupcakes.  Not going to lie the cupcakes are my favorite because I love all things dessert. I’ve discovered, much to the love of my children, gingerbread cupcakes make a great dessert and a even better breakfast dessert.  Plus it leaves the entire house smelling delicious even before you bake them.
