Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cinnamon Buttercream

Serves: 24

Skill level: Easy

Prep/cook time: 45 mins



  • 100g unsalted butter, softened

  • 185g caster sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 200g (1 1/3 cup) self-raising flour, sifted

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 ½ tsp ground ginger

  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg

  • ½ tsp ground cloves

  • 125ml (1/2 cup) milk

Cinnamon Buttercream

  • 250g unsalted butter, softened

  • 450g (3 cups) icing sugar mixture, sifted

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste

  • Pinch salt


1. Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced. Line a Wiltshire Rose Gold Muffin Pan 12 Cup with cases and set it aside. 

2. In a large bowl with a hand mixer (or using a stand mixer) cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy (about 6-8 minutes). Add eggs one at a time, mixing between each addition to incorporate.

3. Combine the sifted flour and spices. Add the flour and milk in two batches, mixing until just combined. Add ¼ cup of batter to each case then bake for 15-20 minutes or until the top of the cupcakes bounce back when pressed lightly. Allow to cool in tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. To make the cinnamon buttercream place butter and vanilla bean paste in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat on medium-high speed for 6-8 minutes until pale and fluffy. Sift in the icing sugar and cinnamon and fold to combine, then beat for a further 2-3 minutes. 

5: Transfer to a Wiltshire piping bag fitted with a Wiltshire Russian Ball tip and pipe buttercream swirls on top of the cooled gingerbread cupcakes by twisting the bag back and forth and lifting as you pipe.
