I was thinking of making my Banana and Coconut Bread into little cupcakes today. And cup cakes need frosting don’t they?  So I went looking for a a recipe for frosting and I came across this yummy looking Gingerbread cake on Paleo Fondue, and better still, it has Cream Cheese frosting!  Now I have a dilemma as this cake looks so much more tasty than Banana bread cupcakes. I guess I will probably have to force myself to bake both!
