Egg Nog Cupcakes

If you do not like egg nog, do not discount this recipe. Honestly, I do not like egg nog but I LOVE these cupcakes! They are delish and taste just like the holidays to me. I only make cakes with cake mixes because they are much easier and far more consistent. 

Ingredients for the Cupcakes
1 box white cake mix
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoon oil
1 1/3 cup egg nog
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions for the Cupcakes
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all the ingredients in a stand mixer. Beat on high for two full minutes.
3. Follow the baking instructions on the bake of your cupcake box.

Ingredients for the Frosting
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup cream cheese
1 pound powdered sugar
1/4 + 2 tablespoons egg nog

Directions for the Frosting
1. Cream together the butter and cream cheese.
2. Mix in half the powdered sugar until creamy.
3. Add in the egg nog until completely incorporated.
4. Mix in the remaining powdered sugar.

Note: Top the cupcakes with a slight sprinkling of nutmeg to enhance the egg nog flavor.
