Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Coat 2 mini cake pans with baking spray or lightly butter pans then coat with flour.
  3. Mix boiling water, molasses , and baking soda. Don't be scared if it gets bubbly; it's supposed to do that.

  5. Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  6. Add eggs, one at a time until each is fully combined.
  7. Add grated ginger. Combine for 1 minute.
  8. Alternating, add in flour mixture and molasses mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
  9. Divide batter evenly amongst the 2 prepared pans, filling each cup about halfway.
  10. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the cake springs back when touched.
  11. Let cool in pans for 10 min, then remove to a cooling rack.
  12. Dip or spoon icing over cakes.
  13. Serve immediately or once completely cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days.
Notes
To make icing: In a shallow bowl, combine the powdered sugar, milk, nutmeg, and cinnamon until smooth. Dip or spoon icing over cakes.
