This is an amazing recipe! Everyone who had one came back for more, and brought friends!
Now for the tips/tricks: I took the advice of previous reviewers and brewed my coffee very, very strong and made sure the bacon was really, really crispy. Rather than frying it up, I followed the directions on the back of the bacon package to cook on a cookie sheet in the oven, which worked very nicely. Also, to get the pieces as small as possible, I used a food processor to crumble, which also worked nicely.
I chose to make mini-cupcakes instead of regular sized. If you decide to go this direction, I baked mine for 12 minutes and they came out done, but still moist. However, I would shy away from making this recipe as minis again. The flavor of the cake was spot on, but in the smaller size when frosted, the cake to frosting ratio (even with minimal frosting) skewed the overall flavor and made the bacon hard to detect. After extensive testing by my volunteer tasters, it was agreed that a regular size cupcake would create the best balance.
