Bourbon-Bacon Cream Cheese Frosting
Makes enough for 24 cupcakes, 2 9"x5" pound cakes, or 1 8"-9" round 2-layer cake

8 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 TB bourbon
1 tsp vanilla extract

Add the butter and cream cheese to the bowl of your electric mixer and beat on medium speed until creamy and blended. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the powdered sugar. Add in the bourbon and vanilla extract, then beat the frosting on medium to high speed until creamy, scraping down the sides when needed. Stir in half of the bacon with a spatula. Frost the cakes once cooled, then sprinkle the remaining bacon on top.
