Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Candied Bacon

Pancake Cupcakes

Well it’s finally February, and yesterday Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, so that means an early Spring…which I can handle. Finally though after a pretty mild winter thus far we did get some sort of blizzard here in MN. Nothing to phone home about…school got out early, the wind is sure blowing, but unfortunately the snow has stopped. Like I’ve been telling people, the last few years here it has been pretty mild snow wise. We haven’t received too much of it and I believe that if it’s going to be cold, there better be snow otherwise let’s just move onto Spring! On another note, I made cupcakes! No ordinary cupcakes either. Breakfast cupcakes. Cupcakes to wake up your senses. Now I can honestly say that it’s acceptable to eat dessert for breakfast with these Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Candied Bacon!! Read more

Yes, I was born and raised in Minnesota but in no way, shape or form am I ever prepared for winter. None, zero, doesn’t happen. Last year for Christmas my husband bought me an electric car starter so I didn’t have to get into a subzero car when I needed to go anywhere. That my friends is still in the box and has yet to be installed. There are a few day’s where I really could have used it. Now that it’s getting colder out I doubt it will be installed this year at all. Sad face.  Read more
