How to Make Bacon Maple cupcakes
- Place can of frosting in mixer, add enough powdered sugar to thicken it a little, about a cup and a half, or to your desired thickness. It is easier to pipe then straight out of the can when it can get a little thinner in your warm hands. Place into piping tube fitted with desired tip, I prefer star shape. Frost cooled cupcakes.
- Sprinkle crumbles bacon over cupcakes. Mix about 1 tablespoon mapleine with 2 tsp milk, add to about 2 cups powdered sugar. Mix well and add powdered sugar until it resembles a thin frosting. Drizzle over top of bacon using a ziploc baggie or just a fork dipped and dangled over.
- You can omit the bacon and use nuts instead for Maple nut cupcakes.
