Ultimate Cupcake

I think that yesterday I may have eaten the greatest cupcake ever:
Buttermilk Cupcake with Maple Frosting and Candied Bacon

This thing is a buttermilk cupcake, with maple frosting, and a chunk of candied bacon to top it all off.

I bought it from The Sweetspot in Whitewater, WI and brought it back to work in a nifty plastic clam-shell cupcake holder thing. Opening it up, my desk instantly smelled like a pancake breakfast. Fortunately, this was one of those rare moments when something smelled awesome and ended up tasting exactly the way it smelled (unlike hazelnut coffee, I don't know why that stuff is so deceiving).

A portable pancake breakfast. YES!

    Awesome! That looks delicious! I made candied bacon as part of my dessert course at Thanksgiving a couple of years ago. Talk about sublime!

    That is such a fun cupcake story! Cupcakes are fun. The whole cupcake culture is fun. Have you ever watched that cupcakes wars tv show? That's fun. Cupcakes at work are fun. Cupcakes at home are fun. Cupcakes when you visit someone are fun. Cupcakes. Cupcakes. Cupcakes.

    Sometimes I have to stop and ask "Did I just break spudart?" 😛

    I love cupcakes, but I eat them so rarely! I saw this one in the sweetspot's newsletter and started drooling. I had to try one.
