I look forward to eggnog latte’s each winter.
After having a few too many of them so far,
I realized that I wanted to recreate my favorite drink
into a cupcake form.
This cupcake is going on my must make list
for every Christmas season after.
It had a mild eggnog flavor paired
with a delicious light coffee frosting.
Just perfect for this coffee addict!!!

I am thinking about freezing some eggnog
just so that I can enjoy these year round:-)

(I say that but, in reality I won’t)

    Have you ever frozen eggnog? I had a reader tell me she does it every year, it might separate a little, but she stirs it up and uses it in her baking.

    Not sure if I would enjoy it and look forward to it if it was available to me all year.

    Oh, and have I told you lately I love you and your baking? Oh em gee these are so right up my alley. I mean seriously, you think like I think….and I think that’s quite scary :)
