Pure Pleasure! Who would have thought you could make a cupcake from pancake batter, right? This moist, delicious cupcake along with the maple bacon buttercream frosting will have you wanting to eat these for breakfast! The sweetness of the frosting and that touch of bacon gives this cupcake the perfect trifecta!
