I enjoy a little eggnog.  And I was thinking that eggnog cupcakes would pretty much be Christmas perfection.

I was inspired by fancy eggnog lattes and starting thinking of other favourites that could be improved upon with the addition of some eggnog.  If you’re a fan of all things eggnog you will love these too.

If you’re working on some holiday baking this weekend, these would be a nice addition, especially if you’re an eggnog fan.  I made up a batch of my favourite vanilla cupcakes, and then added a delicious and easy eggnog icing -yum!

how to make Eggnog cupcakes

Since it’s the holidays and we’re all getting a little dressed up to celebrate, I baked these cupcakes in a shiny gold cupcake liner and added some glitz to the top.  I love the little stars in gold, and you know how I feel about the edible glitter!
