Bacon Margarita Cupcakes -- did you ever think those three words would be used to name one unimaginably perfect confection? This is not a cupcake for the faint of heart. This recipe comes to us from Mr. B from Bacon Today, who added bacon to the cupcake to give it a balance of sweet and savory. With a bit of cayenne pepper, this is a sweet treat with a kick!
