For the cheesecake:
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, flour and nutmeg. Add cream cheese to a large mixing bowl, then pour sugar mixture over cream cheese and using an electric hand mixer set on low speed, whip cream cheese mixture just until smooth.
Mix in eggs one at a time, blending just until combined after each addition and adding in rum extract and vanilla extract with second egg. Blend in eggnog.
Tap bowl forcefully against counter top to release some of the excess air bubbles, about 30 times. Divide batter among 12 muffin cups (over crust layer), adding about 1/4 cup batter to each.

For the topping:
In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer set on high speed, whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add 2 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar and whip until stiff peaks form. Spread over set cheesecake cupcakes and sprinkle lightly with nutmeg if desired. Serve chilled.
