Bacon cupcakes.

Yup.

You read that right.

Bacon cupcakes. I'm going to tell you all about them.


These are bacon cupcakes. Notice how they are habitating peacefully in their little box! Our local cupcakery makes some amazing cupcakes, and once in a while they'll do fun and gastronomic flavors like this! We've had them before, and couldn't resist snagging a sweet half-dozen when we heard they'd be doing them again today.


That is real bacon on the frosting! A lot of people have misconceptions about the poor bacon cupcake. A whole cupcake that tastes like bacon?! EW! Fret not, I thought the same thing. But it's a freakin' CUPCAKE, so I gave it a try.

The frosting is lightly sweet and tastes like maple cream cheese. A lot of frostings I'm not so fond of, because they're REALLY sweet, but this is extremely tasty without being overbearing or tooth-softening. The cupcake itself tastes very pancake-esque and is light and fluffy. And the yummy little chunks of bacon on top are a great salty contrast to the sweetness of the cupcake. It's like a breakfast in a muffin cup!


Mine didn't last long, and let me tell you, it was HARD putting down my cupcake to take this photo after my first bite!! SO decadently tasty! It's not a heavy cupcake at all (like a chocolate one would be), so it's hard to keep my hand out of the box after eating just one...

... But I've been eating really good lately, so maybe I'll have another after dinner. ;)

Whaddya think?! Would you eat a bacon cupcake?? :D

Oh man.

One night hubby and I were watching a show called The Best Thing I Ever Ate and they were doing it on bacon. And someone was talking about bacon donuts or muffins or something and I kept thinking, "That is SO WRONG."

I don't know lady. I just don't know...

Holy crap! I'm a vegetarian, so I would have to pass. But, I think my husband is gassing up the car to drive out there for a box right now.
