In a large bowl, combine instant vanilla pudding mix with eggnog, cold milk, and rum extract. Beat as per pudding package directions. Add in toffee bits. Refrigerate until pudding is firm, about 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat the heavy/whipping cream on medium speed for several minutes until soft peaks form then on high speed, then add white granulated sugar. Continue beating on high until stiff peaks form.
Take 2 cups of the whipped cream and fold into the prepared eggnog pudding, stir to combine.
Set aside the remaining whipped cream (this will be your garnish/topping)
Layer cake cubes (cake pieces) on the bottom of glass, then pudding mixture,
Then more cake, leaving enough room for whipped cream topping. Repeat for remaining glasses.
Use a pastry bag, fitted with a 1M tip to pipe on whipped cream topping (or spoon it on)
Sprinkle with additional toffee bits and gold edible candy pearls!
