These are my contribution to the bacon craze. Its a salty and sweet combination with the slight bacon flavoured buttercream and the bacon bits adding texture to the batter. The Guinness adds a rich deep flavour, offsetting the sweetness of chocolate and maple. All come together to create a very “manly” cupcake… which is totally lost on my hubby since he’s not a fan of sweet and salt mixing.

But, I sure didn’t mind them!
