This recipe is amazing!! Probably one of the best recipes I've stumbled across, ever. Thanks mkcupcakequeen and allrecipies.com! Everybody who's tried these cupcakes have loved it so far. The coffee adds amazing depth to the chocolate cake, which is deliciously moist, and the bacon works surprisingly well when you frost the cupcake. I'm not a huge chocolate frosting fan, so I whipped up a batch of maple buttercream frosting, which really complemented the rich, dark sweetness of the cake and the savory saltiness of the bacon. The cake tasted kind of weird on its own, but with this frosting it was perrrfect--though in the future I'm going to modify the icing recipe to use less butter, since it was a bit too buttery for me. I used thick cut bacon since that's all we had--will try with normal bacon next time since I think it'll be better with super crispy bacon!
