Hey cake people!


I'm looking for a TRIED and true eggnog pastry cream recipe for the filling in a gingerbread cake.  I've searched the internet and they seem to vary GREATLY.  As in, some call for a cup of butter (eeek!) and some call for 1.5 tbsp, etc.  I'm also toying with the idea of doing a bourbon caramel frosting (opinions?  too rich?), so I don't want a super sweet filling, just one with a really great eggnog taste.


This is just to bring in to work, so I don't want to spend a ton of money experimenting.  Thank you in advance!
