Merry Christmas! So it's finally Christmas and therefore this is the last chance I can squeeze in another festive baking post for you all! This last Christmas post is a Gingerbread Latte Cupcake recipe.
The Ingredients for the cupcakes!

The ingredients for the frosting!
160g icing sugar
90g soft butter

Sieve the flour and spices into a bowl.
Add the butter and sugar and beat until fluffy.
Pour the treacle and egg into the mix and beat together.
In a mug add the bicarbonate of soda and coffee and stir.
Stir this into the mixture.
Divide between the cases and bake at gas mark 4 for 25 minutes until firm to touch.

Pipe onto the cakes and place gingerbread shapes on top to decorate. My gingerbread recipe can be found here.
