Eggnog Spiced Rum Layer Cake: Eggnog cake brushed with an eggnog and spiced rum mixture layered nice and tall and covered in White Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream.
The tree is up.
Actually all indoor decor is up.
And already I am happier.
I’m not cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year so I don’t need to spend my weekend planning it.
Instead I’m spending my weekend preparing holiday recipes for you to use to plan with. 🙂
Most bloggers love this time of year because of traffic.
While many of them like the traffic for increased income, I just love it because it means people are using my recipes.
Which is the whole reason I have a blog.
I never wanted it to be a business but rather a place for people to come and get inspired and hungry. 🙂
This cake maybe an eggnog cake but it isn’t super eggnog-y (that’s a word now).
But you most definitely need fresh nutmeg in the cake.
I have a nutmeg grinder and it’s awesome. Though I’m considering upgrading to this one.
The one I have now is 24 years old but still works fantastic.
If you are not a fan of booze you can omit the rum and just brush the layers with eggnog instead.
I’m fortunate that I have two local places that make really good small batch eggnog.
You may use whatever eggnog you want…spiked or not but just make sure that it is FULL fat eggnog.
P.S. Yes, my cake leans a little…thanks for noticing. 😀
