All things BACON

x x x
Aw Bacon, my one true love. Maybe you remember when I made those Chocolate Beer Battered Cupcakes with Maple Bacon Frosting. And it was ah-mazing. The combination of chocolate and bacon is ridiculously good, but the frosting is unbelievably good. 
Recently I stumbled upon this recipe, for a chocolate pound cake with bacon bourbon frosting. UM, NOOOM?! My flatmates are just as obsessed with the sweet and salty combination of bacon and...anything, really. So I made this cake for them when they submitted their dissertation. The recipe is not the most difficult, but it does take quite a while to make and I am probably the messiest baker in the land, so I don't even want to talk about how the kitchen looks like right now. OOPS. But the cake is amazing, let me tell you.

The recipe calls for two baking pans that are the same size, and I didn't have that- so I had to use one bigger and one smaller, round one (see picture). Oh and I also used whisky instead of bourbon, which turned out really good too. It looks quite different to the original different, but I guess that happens when you use slightly different ingredients. Anyways, this calorie bomb is SUPER SUPER yummy, and will send you in a delirious sugar shock that is well worth it.
