Making these Pumpkin Gingerbread Cupcakes

You’ll need…

  • pumpkin cake batter
  • gingerbread cake batter
  • a big batch of my favorite homemade whipped cream
  • graham crackers, chocolate, and a cookie cutter if you want to make the little gingerbread men I put on top

Swirl the Batter

To make a perfectly marbled cupcake, add the batters into the cupcake liners alternately one tablespoon at a time. Then use a knife to gently swirl– but not mix!

Tip: add a little cocoa powder to the gingerbread cake batter to make it appear a little darker and create a beautiful contrast in colors. It won’t affect the taste at all!

Make Gingerbread Cupcake Toppers

This is easier than you would think! I simply used a small gingerbread man cookie cutter and graham crackers. When you press down on the graham cracker, the pieces of the cracker on the outside of the cutter will crumble and break. But the shape on the inside will stay in tact! Gently push the graham cracker out of the cookie cutter, dip it in melted chocolate, and pipe on the details using store-bought white frosting and sprinkles.

Remember cutting out these graham crackers for Homemade Mallomars® last month? Same concept.
