Picture of How to Eat a Cupcake for Breakfast

This is a chocolate espresso cupcake with chocolate espresso frosting topped with candied bacon and a bit of waffle. I was inspired to make this cupcake because breakfast is by far my favorite meal, and my favorite things for breakfast are coffee, a waffle, and bacon. The finished product is delicious, and it really does taste like breakfast.

Before embarking on this cupcake making venture, please remember that when you're working with raw meat and eggs, it's important to wash hands and utensils thoroughly!

*Full disclosure: I might have made a grilled cheese in the middle of this project.
