Bourbon Bacon Cupcakes  

As prepared by Baker Peabody

Instead of buying the traditional tie this year, why not make something your dad will really appreciate for Father’s Day – Maple Bacon Bourbon Cupcakes!


When your dad hears you say bacon and bourbon in one sentence – and then learns it's in cupcake form – he’ll be quite the proud papa. Besides, making anything instead of buying it usually means that much more…it shows you took the time to show dear old dad just what he means to you.

To make the cupcakes:
