This was a hit with friends at a Christmas gathering this weekend!Made according to directions and results were superb. Was easy to make and the almonds made for a beautiful cake. I will keep this recipe to make for potlucks during the holidays!

This was an excellent way to use up holiday eggnog. It makes a pretty presentation with the almonds on top, and tastes just like a glass of eggnog. Thanks for sharing this seasonal treat!

Used leftover eggnog in this cake - it was delicious. Didn't have rum or rum extract on hand, so substituted Southern Comfort, doubling the amount called for (due to a previous comment). It came out excellent; makes a very rich cake, but not heavy. Used 1/2 of Eggnog glaze recipe # 84417 which was also very good.
