gingerbread cupcakes + pumpkin buttercream

October 31, 2012

Gotta tell you.  I'm prepped, I'm ready, and I hope you are, too.  Be it a brightly colored wig, a  superhuman cape, or perhaps a pair of ears in addition to the pair already affixed headside.  Extra flair on this Wednesday is the name of the game and I'm that sickeningly excited Halloweener who sets the alarm an extra early to make sure time is allotted for costuming.  Before work.  Before 8 in the morning.  Sorry.  I just enjoy the snot out of this day.

My three year old niece has requested that I flank her Halloweening as a cat this year...so a black cat I shall be.   And Griffin Lorraine Simpson?   Well.


Raise the roof, homie.  With a gingerbread cupcake in the other hand.  Wishing a wicked happy Halloween from us to you.

Oh gurl! I would go trick or treating if I could eat these along the way! I had that hot dog costume for my pug last year. This year he was a little too chubby to pull it off!

Made 3 dozen for a birthday at work. Groans when everyone heard they were vegan, but lots of compliments once they were tasted. I'm new to gluten-free, so I don't know if this is common, but I found that the middles of most cupcakes didn't rise like I'm used to. Almost resulted in over-cooked cupcakes. Also, are both flax seed amounts required? Thanks for the recipe!
