Bacon Cupcakes

...so, I was browsing around looking for some Awesome Cupcake Art for my other thread and I came upon this youtube* where these two artists are talking about the "sweet and salty savory explosion of flavor in Bacon Cupcakes" and how so "many" bakeries are carrying these...i laughed at their clever repartee, dry humor, until I paused and thought...

....they couldn't be serious, could they? I thought they MUST be joking so I googled "bacon cupcakes" and there are 9 MILLION results!! So there are either 9 million in on this joke or I'm the last one to hear of this "savory explosion" truism.

no i never heard of it either. is this supposed to be a sweet or a savory. if sweet i don't think it sounds very good. bacon lovers may love it though

Michael Symon, during his short tenure on "Dinner Impossible", made chocolate covered bacon!

Just had a bacon cupcake a few weeks ago, don't really think the womens recipe was very good, but I love the concept... I've made chocolate covered bacon before and the sweet and salty is a wonderful flavor combination...

Isn't Chocolate & Bacon part of the two major food groups?

I love my chocolate, I love my bacon...but I really am not sure about loving them together. Well, maybe when I am dipping strawberries for a wedding reception I will use a bacon rasher to sop up the rest of the chocolate and see how it goes!

I'd try it. Chocolate and pretzels are yummy. So are chocolate and potato chips. Bacon with cupcakes. Sure...I'd give it a try being the adventurous thing I am....plus...it's bacon...and CUPCAKES! I think I want vanilla cupcakes through...

it's not really that surprising seeing as how many people love maple syrup overruns on their bacon.

You could use maple sugar icing with crispy crumbled bacon on top...but don't let me fool you, I'm still not on board with this

I was picturing a coffee cake type cupcake with little crunchy, sweetened bacon sprinkles.
