"These cupcakes are a great way to get the flavor of eggnog without being overwhelmed by its richness. The frosting is light and creamy, not overly sweet or waxy!"

This review is for the cupcake only, as I chose to use another frosting, "Smooth Buttercream Frosting," also from this site. I thought I might like this cake mix eggnog cake recipe better than the one I tried yesterday, as this one included butter and the other did not. I did not find this greatly improved - even with a 1/4 cup of butter and four eggs the cake was dense, but wimpy and spongy. Further, I found 1 tsp. of nutmeg in addition to what is probably in the eggnog, to be overkill. Half that much would have done nicely. The cupcake, unfortunately, was probably saved by the excellent buttercream frosting I chose to use. As this recipe's first reviewer, I wish I could have rated it higher.
