Spiced rum cake with eggnog frosting will have your guests begging for seconds (thirds!).
Nothing says celebration like cake. Cakes are the quintessential celebratory dessert, as they should be. Layers upon layers of sweetness, covered in beautiful frostings of all sorts and colors. What’s not to love?! And going off of my last Christmas-themed post of 2015, I felt like a boozy cake was in order. This eggnog and spiced rum cake has a plethora of autumnal seasonings. Rum is not only baked into the cake, but is also soaked into it in after the cake has baked.
Finish this cake off with a creamy eggnog frosting that is very boozy. The frosting is made with a touch of cream cheese and it has that delicious, signature custardy flavor.
And of course I had to make this a naked cake. It’s the only way I ever want to make cakes ever again. I love embracing all the flaws and imperfections, aka not perfectly frosted sides. What do they call that? Rustic. Yeah, sure. ‘Rustic.’
I’m going to be a little MIA for the next few weeks while I do some traveling to Michigan and Chicago to do research for my upcoming travel guides. I can’t wait to show you guys what I’ve been up to, and can’t wait to start of 2016 with you all! Stay tuned 🙂
