These delicious grain and gluten free cupcakes are swirled with maple syrup, bacon and topped with Bacon Buttercream! You would never know they are Paleo!
Guess who’s only about 2% unpacked, swimming in boxes and is now packing AGAIN to go to Charleston for Mr. FFF’s brother’s wedding tomorrow?
Guess who is a teeenssyyyy tinsyy bit OH-MY-GOSH-WHY-ARE-ALL-THE-THINGS-HAPPENING-AT-ONCE-SO-MUCH-STRESSED-OUT?
If you also guessed “yours truly,” you would be, in fact, quite right.
Sidenote: Apparently it’s brother wedding season? Did I miss this memo?
How-EV-er, do you know what cures all anxiety-ridden-days-of-general-doom-gloom-and-how-will-I-get-everything-done?
Bacon. Specifically Zaycon Foods Hickory Smoked Bacon. Because you can never have enough smoky goodness on your bacon amIright?
Also, let’s just stop for a second and talk about justhowmuch am I feeling the bacon LUHVE these days. Remember when you guys were super nice and totally DID NOT JUDGE ME for cooking it for my first time with those Paleo Spaghetti Squash bowls?
Well, those strips of golden brown, crunchety, crispety pork nummies have been making their way to basically all the meals that I have been eating since then.
I actually walked up the stairs to my apartment the other day…and the whole hallway smelled like bacon.
You’re welcome neighbor friends.
Unless they don’t like bacon? IN THAT CASE, good thing I moved away from people with such questionable taste buds.
But, you know what? Bacon sometimes feels a bit left out the day’s events. Typically it gets shoveled into your face 2 STRIPS AT A TIME (don’t lie, I know it’s not just me) in the early hours of the day, when you’ve got no makeup on, have not showered and you’re still in your fuzzy bunny slippers.
Hypothetically. I don’t have those.
BUT, my friends, these pieces of general tasty food deliciousness are needy. They wantstoNEEDSTO see you throughout your day. They wants to see you FRESH FACED.
And, if we’re being really honest at the level of insecurity of bacon, it NEEDS to be the very way that you end the day.
Like, in your dessert. Like, in your cupcakes all swirled together with THE REAL DEAL Maple Syrup.
Did you just hear my Canadian heart song playing, or was that just me?
Anyway. These cupcakes. I don’t want to get too excited…BUT GET EXCITED.
I mean, we’re talking about completely PALEO FRIENDLY (hello no gluten or grains!) soft and tender little mounds of cake that are topped off with Maple BACON FAT BUTTERCREAM.
Do you want a broom to help you sweep your taste buds off the floor? Don’t worry, I am looking out for you.
Now, I am beginning to see a pattern with my Paleo baking attempts. Remember the Paleo Lemon Bars that took eleventy billion times to perfect?
These cupcakes happened 12 times. In 3 Days. BUT I COULD NOT GET SMOKEY SWEET MAPLE MOIST CUPCAKES OUT OF MY BRAIN.
So, I pressed on and continued testing cupcakes for breakfast, lunch AND DINNER. JUST FOR YOU. And so that I could without .0001% of a doubt say that they are everything that your face wants in life, wrapped up in a cute little liner.
Needy bacon was also very pleased.
