December is drawing ever closer, so bring on the Christmas treats. I'll be scouring the seasonal sections over the next couple of months to find anything I haven't yet tried, and these cupcakes seemed like a pretty good start. These consist of ginger sponge cakes filled with toffee sauce, topped off with a ginger icing and a cute little gingerbread man decoration.
Looking over the ingredients, all the ginger stuff actually contains ginger powder, and it shows. The cake is a nice, moist sponge with a nice spicy kick, and the frosting is smooth and creamy with the same full flavour. It's not overly gingery, but the spice lingers for a while after eating, the perfect amount of warmth for the winter. The toffee sauce is a lovely little touch, adding a gooey texture and an extra sweet kick. All in all these cupcakes are great, a lovely festive treat that will warm you up on a cold winter's day. I'll certainly be picking some more up while they're still around.
My rating: 5/5
