Weekly Sweet


Happy Friday! It finally feels like fall here in Austin, which is good, because I am definitely in holiday mode! Thanksgiving and Christmas are my two favorite holidays, and I know they’re coming up fast. Anyone else start their Christmas shopping this early?

I think everyone knows it’s “officially” holiday season when Starbucks comes out with their red holiday cups…it’s pretty much the only thing that’s been on twitter this week. ;) So in light of that, and last week’s Starbucks board on Hey Gorgeous, here’s today’s weekly sweet!

{Eggnog Cupcakes with Latte Frosting}

Enjoy it at: a bridal shower or engagement party, with brunch or with desserts–either one would work with these flavors! You’ll know it’s the right season to serve these if the red cups are out at Starbucks. :) Picture and recipe on The Cupcake Project.

Which Starbucks holiday drink do you look forward to the most? Peppermint mochas are my personal favorite!








  1. wow! Yum! Will have to try these! Yea last night was the first night I was actually cold since I’ve moved to Austin!

  8. Secret confession; I am absolutely in love with egg nog, Lise. So this is dangerous that I just came across this. Pure danger :)
