Alphabet cupcakes – E is for eggnog

By on Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Eggnog is awesome, but these cupcakes from Chockylit look even better, and why is that?  Well I am glad you asked, the reason is the Bourbon Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting!!!  I haven’t made this version before, but I have made a very similar cupcake, which if you like eggnog is divine.  Most of all though I want to try the frosting, which I think would probably work well on lots of different types of cupcakes.

So whether you try these cupcakes now, for Christmas in July, or wait till the official date in December, it is a recipe worth filing away!

2 Amazing Things in 1: Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

Annie of Frites and Fries brings us these tasty treats, an invention she created for her roommate. Not only does she give us lots of delicious looking pictures, she includes her recipe in her post, an altered version of the butter cake recipe featured in Gourmet in 2008 with Slashfood’s cream cheese frosting. And that wee little cinnamon roll on top just makes it as cute as all get out (yes, Annie has a recipe for that too!). This opens the door to a some other interesting alterations of the base butter cake recipe…crumb cupcakes, anyone?
