First of all, I did this before and it was awesome. But I did it as a big cake (per the recipe) and people were confused. It was potluck and until someone cut into it, it looked straight up desserty. Imagine their surprise.
Even the bacon bits crumbled on the sides didn’t give away the savory reality. In fact, that was the dawn of the bacon craze, so really it was going on desserts (or would soon be) anyway.
This year, I’m doing it as cupcakes. Pretty stoked, actually. Tip of the hat to MBF for the cupcake idea.
