Eggnog Cupcakes: regular vanilla cupcakes are taken up a notch for Christmas our eggnogg icing recipe. Perfect for holiday get togethers.
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!
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 4 cups icing sugar
- 1/2 cup eggnogg
- 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
- In the bowl of a stand mixer beat your butter, and then slowly incorporate your icing sugar, eggnog, and freshly grated nutmeg.
- Whip until smooth and fluffy.
- Pipe onto your vanilla cupcakes and enjoy.

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!
Hoping your holiday prep goes well this weekend, and if you’re doing some baking give these yummy treats a try.
With beautiful Eggnog Cupcakes to celebrate the holidays, life really is a party!
