HOLIDAY CAPTAIN MORGAN EGGNOG CUPCAKES!

Eggnog is one of those things that either you love it or you hate it, today I decided that I loved it in the Silk Seasonal Nog version and threw together a delish recipe after skimming through recipe books this afternoon. The cake is light and fluffy and the frosting is absolutely to die for! Enjoy the recipe and share with all of your gorgeous friends and family!  -JF
