In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, orange peel, ginger, baking soda and salt. Combine eggs and sweet potatoes; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. 

Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400F for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
