It's been a while since my last cupcake posting. This recipe is SUPER EASY to make. Begin with any Yellow Cake recipe. Replace the milk or water (exact measured amount) with Eggnog. Mix & Bake according to the directions. Frosting: Add 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of Rum Extract to your favorite Buttercream frosting. (homemade or store bought) Mix well, frost the cooled cupcakes and sprinkle with a light dusting of powdered nutmeg.
I baked a batch of these last night - needless to say, the one in the picture has already been devoured. If you plan on making these for a Holiday Gathering I suggest they arrive with the following warning label: "CAUTION - Eating these Cupcakes may be Addictive!"
I finished this Red & Green quilt the week before Christmas - last year. I unpacked it this morning and hung it on the quilt rack in my living room. looking at the photo now - I should have ironed it first...lol
One of the names for this pattern is called Broken Star. I purchased the fabrics and cut them all out 4 years ago. At the time I was still grieving the loss of my father who passed away a few weeks before Christmas the previous year. The center star made me think of our family gathering around the tree on Christmas day and the broken/fractured star points - family members watching over us in heaven. The quilt measures 48" square with 512 small diamond pieces that make up the star components. Because of my tardiness to complete this for Christmas - I machine quilted it myself.
And here is a tiny doll quilt that I am currently working on. Also a Remembrance quilt that I will most likely title Colonial Rose. It measures 13" square and is completely hand pieced. I still need to come up with a quilting design for the finish. NO idea's yet! every Quilt tells a story...
