The Bacon Cupcake Compendium

the-bacon-cupcake-compendium
What is it about a cupcake that fills our hearts with so much joy and happiness? Not to mention, our mouths… Pictures of cupcakes are like pictures of babies and puppies. They make you ooh and aah, even if you don’t particularly care for babies or puppies. You just can’t avoid the jaw-dropping effect. Cupcake. Jaw drop. It’s hard-wired into us.

A cupcake makes you want to stuff it in your face AND nibble at it with delicate, dainty little bites, all at the same time. Few foods have this dual effect. That’s because they make you want to consume them as quickly as is humanly possible, AND make them last as long as is humanly possible. Call it the Cupcake Conundrum.

And while almost all food strives to be visually appealing, there’s a particular art to Cupcake Decoration. From the wrapper to the toppings, cupcakes are designed to be so perfectly pretty, you almost don’t want to eat them. The key word being “almost…”

And all of this heavenliness fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. It’s no wonder that people are obsessed with cupcakes almost as much as they’re obsessed with bacon! So we’ve scoured the web for the very best bacon cupcake recipes, now that fall is here and the cool weather’s got us in a baking mood. Bookmark this thread for the next time you attempt to achieve bacon cupcake perfection in the kitchen.
