So we celebrated Branden’s birthday a couple days ago – the big 34! He says he feels like he’s getting old. I told him he’s like a 13 year old at heart. He didn’t disagree 🙂 He and I get to go on a date in a few nights to celebrate, but I wanted to make him a cake. When I asked him what kind he wanted, he responded without hesitation, “Bacon!” (Not surprising 🙂 So, cake + bacon = maple bacon cupcakes!
You know when you eat pancakes with syrup and bacon and everything all kinda mixes together? Yeah, it pretty much tastes like that 🙂
I found the recipe here. My icing was a little runny so I added 2 more cups of powdered sugar to thicken it. I also sprinkled bacon pieces on top instead of using strips, but I’m sure either is good! I know it sounds kinda strange, but they were actually pretty good, if you like bacon!
