Ready for the holidays?? I am!! This is my rendition of a southern classic. The Nog Buttercream Cake. Throughout my formulation process I got completely nogged out, but that doesn't make this recipe any less delectable.
CAP Sweet Cream / FW Butter Cream
These two append the icing/moistness to the cake. Butter Cream from FW does an awesome job of thickening bakeries with dense mouthfeel. The two together do a wonderful job of fattening up that unfortunate and slightly thin back-note of FLV Eggnog.
WF Princess Cake / JF Yellow Cake
These two obviously both have the word cake in their titles, so one could reasonably assume it makes up the cake. I went with Princess Cake based on a recommendation from @Shyndo so credit goes to him for that. JF Yellow Cake helps to supply a bit more cake note as I found Princess Cake to be a little on the airy side.
By far the best eggnog concentrate I've dealt with hands down. It's a tad spice forward so we'll need to lift the thin back-note a tad with other contributors.
Add Complexity w/ an Accent
I like to add in right around .5% FW Maple Pecan. At a low % it contributes a light but noticeable nut to the cake, which is of course depicted in the thumbnail. If you're into bakeries with a light nut accent and have it on hand I recommend it's inclusion. Omitted in the main recipe as to be more available.
side note This is a STEEPER. It needs proper time to meld the flavoring, so aging is required. It's actually better after the 21 day mark though I am hesitant to call for a 3 week steep. As with any cream heavy recipe, keep in mind that it's better the longer it has to emulsify.
Have a wicked set of holidays! If you mix this up set it aside for Xmas and enjoy it as it melds together into a beautiful orgy of holiday themed flavors. 💦
