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!
