What would you do with these cute little guys?

I bought these cute little gingerbread men sprinkles from King Arthur: Aren't they adorable?! I know that they are kind of Christmasy, but my grandma's name is Ginger and she likes gingerbread men year round, so I'm hoping to make her a nice treat with them. So, what do you think? Maybe lemon cupcakes with a vanilla icing? Any thoughts?

  1. For some reason, I'm thinking of putting them on top of a pumpkin-ginger cheesecake.

    1. Adorable!!!

      I love librarian's idea. You could make a gingerbread, frost it and sprinkle on top, or gingerbread muffins?

      Or, you could make a nice white or red velvet cake for Valentine's Day and put them holding hands in the shape of a heart on top?

        I did forget to mention probably the most important part- she's not too fond of the taste of ginger!! Ironic, isn't it?! :-)

          Ooh, scratch the gingerbread idea. I'm thinking you could also put these atop a sweetpotato or squash casserole?

            I think the lemon cupcakes sound delicious.

            I made a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake at the holidays that was delicious and I think those little guys would be cute as a decoration on top.

              Ooh... maybe lemon cupcakes with a pocket of raspberry jam in the middle?

                Yum, sounds good - or even blueberry jam...

        2. OH SOOOO CUTE! Ginger is usually good with squash or pumpkin, so how about an out of season pumpkin pie? Or maybe some sort of pumpkin based cake...there're recipes for it on Food Network....

          1. Cupcakes sound good. Or, you could circle them around the base of a cheesecake.

            1. Put dabs of icing on their little feet and have them running off the cake onto the plate and then onto the table...
