Nothing says Christmas is almost here like a cup of eggnog! I can’t remember a holiday season without this iconic, creamy, calorie-laden drink! So why not add it to a cake to make an eggnog cake?! This holiday chocolate eggnog cake is like enjoying eggnog in cake form! I add loads eggnog into my ‘Simple Vanilla Cake’ recipe and then soak each layer with more eggnog! The result is simply delicious – you get loads of flavor in every bite!
For the frosting, I used my basic chocolate buttercream recipe. I have a separate video recipe for that, and my vanilla cake. This buttercream is so rich and creamy and complements the eggnog flavor. I like to top this simple cake off with snowflakes made of white chocolate and edible pearls for a winter-y finish! Feel free to garnish the top with frosting dollops, cookies and truffles.
Make sure to watch my video recipe for step-by-step instructions!
I love these beautiful cake layers! This cake is so Christmas-y and simply perfect for the holiday season in every way!
