I am a bacon devotee.  I’m not sure if you have noticed, but I love the stuff!  That’s why when I was challenged to create a sweet and savoury bacon muffin I jumped at the challenge!   But, this is a tale of sadness, regret, but eventual triumph!  Two months ago, on a cold January evening, I was contemplating new ways to use bacon in my baking when my husband asked, “Can you make a bacon cupcake?”  A cupcake? ...
