This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

bacon cupcakes.




I brought these over to Dru's superbowl party awhile ago. The challenge was to include bacon. I decided to make a pancake cupcake with bacon crumbled into the batter. The mix of subtle sweet and salty was a good mix. For the frosting, it was a buttercream with a hint of maple/honey syrup. Then i candied some bacon by baking it in the oven with brown sugar to top off the cupcakes. I was a bit skeptical as were the attendees to the event.. but everyone seemed pleasantly surprised by the taste. project succeeded!

i think you made the right choices! I almost expected a slight surprise deviation though, not sure what that would've been, but hmmm...
