Egg Nog Cupcakes

These were decadent. Truly scrumptious albeit very sweet. I love egg nog & love to make things with the taste (see my egg nog custard pie). So with that idea in mind, I knew what I would be bringing to ring in the New Year with our good friends. Happy new year indeed.

More cowbell!
Prepare Eggnog Pound Cake batter as directed. Place 24 paper baking cups in 2 (12-c) muffin pans; spoon batter into cups. Bake at 350° for 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely. Beat butter & cream cheese with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar alternately with eggnog, beginning & ending with sugar & beating at low speed. Add freshly grated nutmeg & vanilla extract; beat until smooth. Spread over cupcakes.
