1 18.25 ounce package yellow cake mix
1 cup eggnog
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 whole eggs
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large bowl, combine all ingredients. Hand beat (I used a mixer and it turned out fine!) with a balloon whisk for at least one minute or more if lumps remain visible.
Pour into cupcakes pans and cook for 15- 20 minutes.
Cool 5 minutes in pans then move to wire rack to finish cooling
Cream the butter for 30 seconds until smooth. Add eggnog, vanilla, and 1 C. powdered sugar. Mix until combined. Add powdered sugar cup by cup until you’ve used at least 6 cups and is the consistency you want.
Pipe or spread onto cupcakes.
I made these for my step-dad to take to his work party, and he said they went like hotcakes! My mom and I thought that was really funny! We’re silly like that. The batter for the cupcakes is pretty thick so I added about 1/8 – 1/4 cup more eggnog. It made the standard 24 cupcakes. The frosty is too yummy!! Considering the amount I ate, it’s a wonder that I had enough for the cupcakes!
