Caramel Gingerbread Cupcakes

One night, my niece and I put our heads together to come up a with a fabulous cupcake. We combined our favorite gingerbread cookie recipe and our favorite cupcake recipe, then enhanced the cupcakes with caramel frosting and a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping. Our guests reached for seconds and thirds until nothing was left but a delicious memory and a stellar recipe to share. —Delaine Smith, Barrie, Ontario
