I was a little disappointed with these, because I don't taste bacon AT ALL, not even the slightest hint of it, so it seems like a waste of money to have added that ingredient. Maybe the recipe author meant to use thick-sliced bacon? The cupcakes didn't rise very well, either, and every one of them looked like I poked my finger in the middle of it. Fortunately, I was able to cover that defect up with frosting. Also, they stuck to the paper liners really badly and fell apart when we peeled the papers off, so they were pretty messy to eat. The cakes themselves are very moist and have a good chocolate flavor, so I'll probably attempt this recipe at least one more time using thick-cut bacon and probably adding a little more of it.
