bacon maple cupcakes

 First try at the cupcakes was a monumental fail.  I have no idea why they got all fluffy, then flopped.  I follwed the recipe the same way both times and got completely different results.  It's magic.  Or something.
 The second time, they turned out to be lovely little cupcakes with a decent crumb and a good flavor. I don't know how I did it.
And here they are, frosted and garnished with a bit of bacon.  And oh my do they taste good!  Think of a pancake breakfast.  Think how good the bacon tastes where the maple syrup dribbles on it.  Think of that taste in a cupcake.  Think of a good excuse to ask me to bring a batch over to your house.

    It's the baking fairy....she does that to keep us humble (and thankful for the times it comes out just right!!!)

    I'll trade you however much lavender there is left (plus some of J's) AND all the fabric from the new stash -- for just a couple. xoxoxox

    It's a mystery, isn't it?

    That's why baking is an art and not a science!

    I've missed the last few days. Sick and not able to always form coherent thoughts so here goes:

    I LOVE the wall color! I wouldn't be able to look past it to the mirror.

    The pavilion looks so inviting. I'd set up small tables all around it and have the tea outside (weather permitting, I know you're in Oregon)

    We were just talking about getting the bikes out this weekend and taking a short ride. It's been a while and I'm not sure how much I can handle just yet being a gym slacker and all.

    Bacon/maple cupcakes probably taste better than it sounds. Although I do love syrup on my bacon so who knows?

    I am so glad you are brace free. Now you can be your unrestricted self again.

    This certainly sounds unique. I do like bacon and when I was younger I used to smother my bacon in maple syrup. Yum!

    Tossing It Out

    Not a maple fan, but bacon makes everything better! Whenever I cook it everything in the house that has a mouth and legs lines up in anticipation. Trying to stockpile it for BLTs, etc. is nigh on impossible because it's pilfered right off the platter before it cools.

    Wow! Bacon DOES make everything better!
