Christmas brings with it spicy flavors and aromas that are not very common in non-Christmas baking. The next gingerbread cupcakes recipe is but an example. Please note that you are using sweet molasses, and not blackstrap molasses (a mistake a made as a rookie baker). Blackstrap molasses is a base for barbecue sauce, and trust me – you do not want your desserts to taste like barbecue sauce…
