Bacon Cheesecake Cupcakes

Candy Bacon + Cheesecake = Best cupcake ever!

I didn't think Cheesecake Cupcakes with bacon would be very appetizing . The cupcakes were for my mom's birthday! She always loved Cheesecake and Bacon! Well she found a recipe she wanted me to try, It took 5 hours from making the crust to cooling the cupcakes. It was worth the 5 hours! It's one of my favourite cupcake flavours! Although I don't really like Cheesecake these cupcakes sure changed my mind on Cheesecake! Try them,Trust me they are yummy!

All you need for the bacon part is: 4 strips of bacon,sugar! 
Best bacon you will ever try! Trust me on this one.

5 minutes of each side,Sugar on top.. And 
you're done!

Crispy as ever!

For the crust wafers,butter.sugar,bacon drippings,salt

And for the cupcakes egg,cream cheese,sugar,vanilla extract

Put them in the oven and chill for 5 hours!

1/3 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 large egg

1:To make the bacon, Preheat your own to 350. Line your muffin pan with 24 baking liners. Put the bacon in a large pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until brown, 5 minutes each side. Then poor off the drippings and reserve. Now the fun part.. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sugar over bacon and cook. Place bacon on a plate and set aside.

2: To make the crust Pulse the wafers,butter and the 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings and pinch of salt in a blender or a food processor until finely grounded. press 1 heaping teaspoon of the crumb mixture into regular or mini muffin liners. Bake for 12 minutes then cool.

3: To make the cheesecake : Reduce the oven temperature to 325. Mix together cream cheese,sugar and vanilla in a electric mixer. Mix for 4-5 minutes on medium speed.

Cake Pops for Easter

My friend came over and we wanted to make Cake Pops for Easter! We had a plan to make Easter chickens that look like Bakerella's. That didn't work. We never had the proper sprinkles to make it look like a chiken. But we just had Easter sprinkles so we rolled the Cake pop in that and it still looked nice!
The recipe for the Cake pops are right here

This is what it looks when you bite into it

My friend and I just did weird faces on them!
