Photos: Spicy Maple Bacon Cupcakes

December 8, 2009


It’s cupcakes for breakfast again! Scarlett from CupcakeYumYum was nice enough to share some of her Spicy Maple Bacon Cupcakes with us!


Bacon, that amazing food that can do anything, has again taken cupcake form. Like the bacon cupcakes from Surly Girl Saloon, these ones reminded me of bacon and french toast (always a winning combination!). Scarlett said she uses real maple syrup in the frosting and the cupcake, which makes the smooth and soft frosting especially delicious. The bacon was appropriately crispy, and the pecans added a nice savory toast. These are small, single-bite cupcakes (at least when I’m eating them), so be careful – it’s easy to pop half a dozen of these without noticing!
