Cupcake Base

  • Your favorite vanilla cupcakes. Use your own recipe or grab a box mix if you’re in a pinch! (Most recipes, the yield will be 24 cupcakes)

Candied Bacon

  • 1 Pack Rizer's Bacon Strips
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar


  • 1 Pack Cream Cheese (8 oz)
  • 5 tbsp Butter (margarine is fine)
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 Tsp Maple Extract
  • 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • Maple Syrup (for drizzling)


The Cupcakes

  • Using your favorite recipe or a box mix if you’re in a pinch, bake the cupcakes and set aside to cool.

The Icing

  • Cream together the Butter, Cream Cheese, Vanilla, and Maple Extract.
  • Add in the powdered sugar and mix.
  • When done, the icing should be creamy as shown. If it is too stiff, add in a tbsp of water at a time until it is creamy.
  • Once the icing is done and the cupcakes are cool, pipe icing onto the cupcake.

The Bacon

  • Take Rizer’s Bacon and cut strips in half. Place strips of Rizer’s Bacon on a baking pan- preferably one with sides to keep the oven clean!
  • Cover strips of Rizer’s Bacon with a generous amount of brown sugar. Bake at 350°F for approxmiately 15 minutes or until done. Using tongs, remove bacon from pan and place on plate to cool.
  • Once the candied bacon has cooled, it is time to place your bacon strips on your cupcakes.
  • Once you have built your cupcakes, dig in and enjoy! To add more maple flavor, drizzle the top of the completed cupcakes with pure maple syrup!
