~Drunken Gingerbread Men Cupcakes!

Photo: Ohbiteitblog

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!
