“The Cowboy” Cupcake

This one-of-a-kind cupcake was a winner in our 2013 Best Valentine’s Day Cupcake Contest created by Sarah Utterback! It is a unique look at Valentine’s Day from a “man’s point of view.” There are some very creative ingredients in this recipe that taste absolutely delicious! Visit her recipe for more information on this amazing cowboy recipe!

Here’s what Sarah had to say about her cupcake:
“I’d like to enter my original recipe for a new kind of cupcake, The Cowboy, into your contest.  This recipe is great for the hardest kind of person to shop for on Valentine’s Day: the guy who already has everything.  My unique combination combines some of the things most men love the most: whiskey and bacon.  Don’t be fooled though, my girlfriends have dubbed this their favorite as well! This recipe hasn’t failed me yet and comes out moist and fluffy every time.  My original description of the The Cowboy is a caramel whiskey cake glazed with dark chocolate ganache, light marshmallow buttercream, and maple and brown sugar candied bacon.  YEEHAW!”
