Hallelujah, just two more days till Christmas, my favorite time of year! To be honest, I’ve been giving presentations, finishing essays and studying since October and it feels like the time has raced by so fast. When I got home from a seminar yesterday, it came as quite a shock to realize that Christmas is upon us: presents still needed to be gift wrapped (!), I still hadn’t gone grocery shopping for the Christmas menu (!!) and – I can’t believe I’m saying this – I hadn’t even sung along loudly and proudly with Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is you”.(!!!)

To rectify the absence of Christmas spirit, I will be posting nothing but delicious Holiday treats in the upcoming days, starting today with these magnificent gingerbread and eggnog cupcakes. Christmas is ,after all, the season of guilt-free indulgence! These cupcakes are incredibly easy and deliciously Christmassy! The warmth from the spices blends so well with that hint of rum in the boozy frosting. This cupcake truly represents the essence of the Holiday season: a joyous warmth (check!), sharing delicious treats with the ones you love(check!) and of course lots of booze (check check check!)
