We are officially 8 cupcakes into the “12 cupcakes of Christmas”!! This beautiful Sunday, I bring to you Eggnog Cupcakes. I am not really too big a fan of Eggnog, I tried it with rum for the first time last Christmas and it wasn’t as bad as it is plain. However, for not liking eggnog- I did find these cupcakes extremely delicious. I made these cupcakes to give away and also for an order. I included them in an assortment of cupcakes, which I thought was best. Eggnog is really a hit or miss, people like it or they don’t. I didn’t want to give people strictly eggnog cupcakes and have them not like eggnog to begin with. I received very good feedback on these cupcakes though. I was very happy about that!
I topped these cupcakes with nutmeg cream cheese frosting and then dusted them with nutmeg. I do love the combination of nutmeg and eggnog. They compliment each other so well! I thought a cream cheese frosting would be best for this cupcake. They tasted great with the cream cheese, but I also think a nutmeg buttercream would probably taste great too!
