Eggnog Cake

Eggnog, people either love it or hate it.  I love it!  I wait for it to arrive in the grocery store like I do for Pumpkin Spice in the fall.  So far this holiday season, I have baked two Eggnog Cakes, Eggnog Cupcakes, and two different batches of eggnog cookies. I fall in the “loves eggnog” category.

This cake is sooooooo easy.  It starts with a “Betty Crocker French Vanilla” cake mix and I jacked it up!

I added cinnamon, nutmeg, eggnog, eggs, and oil. Mixed it together, poured it in a pan, and baked it.  

The frosting is the dreamiest frosting ever.  I need a bath bomb made with the frosting ingredients.  I mixed butter, a jar of marshmallow creme, eggnog, nutmeg, and confectioners’ sugar.

I truly think I could go on ‘Shark Tank’ with a complete bath line of “Eggnog Frosting”  and the sharks would be ALL IN!

It is a beautiful cake with the fluffiest of frostings.

Here is a little up close and personal picture of the frosting. Admit it, you licked your lips didn’t you?!

This cake is perfect to take to a party, a luncheon, or just to leave on your counter to snack on all….day…..long.

Go to the grocery store and walk straight to the eggnog.  Who knows, I might see you there buying my 12th carton of eggnog!


Love ya,
