i jumped on the bandwagon! maple bacon cupcakes!!

well... i finally gave in... i jumped on the bacon cupcake bandwagon... and i must say, i might never get off... ohhh man... these are amazing... seriously heaven...

i got the final push to make these from my sister and her boyfriend... they just got back from a trip to seattle and portland (my sister ran her 4th marathon... she's a beast! :) ) and while they were out there they visited a well-known sweet spot called voodoo doughnuts where they ate the maple bacon doughnut... so, when they visited me, they talked and talked about how awesomely delicious these were... so... i caved... and all i can say is thank you...
i took some plain vanilla and chocolate cupcakes and topped them with a maple infused cream cheese frosting and topped them with some extra crispy bacon... i urge you to try these... you will not be disappointed!!
maple cream cheese frosting:
2 8oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
2 cups confectioners’ sugar (or more if you like it sweeter)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (try and use pure, not the stuff you throw on everyday eggos!)
heavy cream

1. in a stand mixer beat cream cheese and butter until well blended
2. alternately add in confectioners sugar and heavy cream until you ready desired consistency
3. blend in maple syrup
4. chill the frosting for 10 to 20 minutes, until it has set up enough to spread smoothly

happy bacon everyone! hehe! i know... i'm a dork... :)
