The Iron Cupcake Last Weeks Bacon Challenge Winner

A few of you have been woo'd by the idea of Melissa's Bacon, Berries and Balsamic, Oh My! cupcake from last weeks IronCupcake BACON challenge. Luckily for all of us, she has agreed to send us the recipe to tempt us even more. Enjoy!

Strawberry Balsamic Sauce

1 1/2 lbs frozen strawberries
3/4 c sugar
1/3 c balsamic vinegar

In a sauce pan, combine the strawberries and sugar. Let macerate for a minimum of 20 minutes, I like to let mine sit for an hour while I have my coffee.

Add in the vinegar, and cook over medium heat for 20-25 minutes until the mixture thickens. Cool and blend until smooth.

For the cake:
I like to use Pioneer Woman's recipe for yellow cake. You can just as easily use a white or yellow box mix or your favorite white cake recipe and just substitute the strawberry syrup for the water or milk. This recipe's cooking time is for 12+ full size cupcakes, if you want mini's, cut the cooking time in half.

(I pulled this recipe from Pioneer Woman's site and changed the ingredients but the instructions are the same: Here is the link:

* 2 cups Cake Flour
* 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
* ¾ teaspoons Salt
* ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Softened
* 1 cup Sugar
* 3 whole Eggs Room Temperature
* 2 teaspoons Vanilla
* ¾ cups (plus A Tad More) strawberry syrup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

With an electric mixer, mix butter and sugar on high speed until fluffy. Scrape sides of bowl and mix for a few more seconds. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla. Mix to combine.

Alternate adding dry ingredients and milk in three batches, mixing for a few seconds after each addition. Scrape sides of bowl, then mix one final time.

Fill paper-lined muffin tins 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes

Cream Cheese Frosting

16 oz cream cheese, softened

1 stick butter softened

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 c powdered sugar

Mix the cream cheese and butter together, add the vanilla and the sugar in 1/2 cup increments, after each addition is fully mixed.

You will also need 6 slices of applewood smoked bacon, cooked. The thick sliced is not the best for the cupcakes, although great for breakfast!

To assemble the cupcakes.

Use a pastry brush to paint the top of the cupcakes with the leftover strawberry syrup, this is the glue for the bacon. Take a half of a slice of applewood smoked bacon (Nueske's is amazing!) and adhere it to syrup. Then frost with the cream cheese icing.

And that's it! These do need to be refrigerated if there are any leftover.

Animal Sugar Cookies

These were featured on food network by the lovely Giada De Laurentiis
for her daughters first birthday party.
The frosting is fantastic and kids love to cut out and decorate their own cookies! Try using the Pillsbury dough, it is quick and easy. The frosting sets very well and small cookies can be used as eco friendly cupcake toppers your child will be proud to display. Gently press our bamboo picks into unbaked cookie before baking if you plan to use as a cupcake topper.


* 1 (16.5-ounce) tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough (recommended: Pillsbury)
* 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting


* 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
* 1 pound powdered sugar
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 1/4 cup water, plus extra, as needed
* Assorted food coloring (see Cook's Note)


Special Equipment: assorted animal-shaped cookie cutters, about 4 to 5-inches long

Decorating suggestion: multi-colored sprinkles, colored decorating sugar, mini chocolate chips, small candies, mini marshmallows

For the cookies: Put an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the cookie dough and flour until smooth. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thick. Using animal-shaped cookie cutters, cut out shapes from the dough and arrange, about 2-inches apart, on the prepared baking sheets. Form the scraps of dough into a ball, roll out to 1/4-inch thick, and continue to cut out animal shapes. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are lightly golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 15 minutes.

For the frosting: In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until smooth, about 20 seconds. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and 1/4 cup water. Beat on low speed until combined. Increase the speed to high and beat until the mixture is smooth, adding more water, as needed, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the frosting is spreadable. Divide the frosting between 3 small bowls. Color the frosting by mixing in 1 drop of food coloring at a time, until the desired color is reached. Spread the frosting over the cooled cookies and decorate.

Cook's Note: If using natural food coloring (such as Select brand), be sure to shake the bottle before adding the coloring to the frosting.

Emily Dickinson's Black Cake

Emily Dickinson's Black Cake Recipe

Adapted From Emily Dickinson: Profile of the Poet as a Cook by the Guides at the Dickinson Homestead and my Gran.


2 cups sugar
1/2 lb. butter Do not use unsalted butter.
5 eggs
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp clove
1 tsp mace
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg, ground
1/4-1/2 cup brandy
1 lb. raisins
2/3 cup currants
2/3 lb. citron
1/2 lb glace cherries whole (red)


Place a shallow pan of water on the bottom of the oven.(The pan must always have water in it because the cake needs the moisture it sucks it right up during baking. Preheat oven to 225 F. Add sugar gradually to butter; blend until light and creamy. Add unbeaten eggs and molasses. Beat well. Sift flour with soda and spices. Beat sifted ingredients into mixture, alternately adding brandy. Stir in raisins, currants,cherries and citron.

Pour batter into two loaf pans lined with waxed paper. Bake at 225F for 3 hours. Remove pan of water for last 1/2 hour. Let loaves cool before removing from pans. Remove paper and wrap in fresh parchment paper. We spritz more brandy on the cake before taping up the paper wrap. This is to be stored in a tin in a very cool place for a month. My Gran kept hers under her attic stairs, I keep mine in the fridge =o) (You can eat it sooner but the month really makes the cake) I like to cut rounds and serve in our Tartan Mary Paper Liners and use the extra in a steamed pudding recipe to half with bread bits.
