I don't think you can make an actual, normal cupcake with booze in it, so this is a perfect variation. With all the new cupcake and whipped cream flavored vodkas on the market now you can make all sorts of boozy faux baked goods. This is the kind of baking I can get behind.
Do you ever get a little upset that gingerbread is so hard to chew and doesn't have any alcohol in it? C'mon, admit it, during the holidays with the family sometimes you just need to get a little buzz on to survive. This buzz is festive, holiday appropriate and best of all, really pretty to look at. Thank goodness the good people at the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen are around to give us creative jiggly ideas. No shame, down the hatch!
