Maple French Toast & Bacon Cupcakes

I love making & experimenting with cupcakes. I know it might sound weird but I love looking at cupcakes too. You eat with your eyes first so I think it’s important for them to look at pretty as possible. I have a homemade white cake mix I use when I’ve got time but a premise package of cake mix is better for the busy schedules of most.

What you’ll need:
1 box white cake mix
1 can cream cheese frosting
3 Eggs
Maple syrup

1. Preheat oven at 350*
2. Mix cake mix, oil, eggs, & water together.
3. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, & maple syrup to taste. I say to taste because you might like it lighter but I like it heavy.
4. Bake & remove from cupcake tin.
5. Let cool completely
6. Cook your bacon & set aside

For Frosting
1. Stir open can of cream cheese frosting
2. Add cinnamon & nutmeg to taste
3. Use a piping bag & tip to apply your frosting to your cupcake
4. Crunch & sprinkle your bacon on-top of your cupcake
5. Drizzle maple syrup over your cupcake {{ I use a small spoon }}

This is your scrumptious outcome

These are my favorite cupcakes to make for myself and for others. They’ve quickly become my boyfriends favorite too. Each time I make them he eats at least 5 in a 12 hour time span. If you try them please let me know how you like them.

    These look so tempting! The specks on the frosting, is it just the nutmeg and cinnamon? From the picture, I thought for sure it would have vanilla bean! Either way, this looks really good! 🙂
