The sweet cinnamon glaze is the secret weapon for amazing gingerbread cupcakes! Guilt-free and ready in 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, and salt.
In another large bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, canola oil, egg, molasses, and buttermilk. Using a spatula, slowly fold the flour mixture, by thirds, into the buttermilk mixture. Mix only until completely blended.
Place cupcake liners in a 12-count muffin or cupcake pan and spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter into each liner. Bake for about 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. When done remove the pan from the oven and set it on a cooling rack. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before glazing.
For the sweet cinnamon glaze:
In a large mixing bowl, add the powdered sugar, water, almond extract, and cinnamon. Whisk until ingredients are well blended. If the glaze is too thick you can add a bit more water. So while whisking, add more water very slowly, about 1/4 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cupcakes immediately before serving.
These cupcakes are all about decoration. My favorites are the monster cupcakes. They are colorful, fun and so easy to achieve the cuteness. No piping skills required. I guarantee you. You can go as crazy as you want. After all they are monsters.
