I am making a meal for my SO for his birthday. Have decided to make it very bacon centric, since he loves the stuff and feels it truly makes everything better (I tend to agree).
On the menu is crostini with brie and bacon, onion jam. Carbonara main, with side salad with bacon crumble.
I know I could come up with some fun bacon inspired dessert, however his all time favourite dessert and a must every year is Black Forest Cake. He will not let me stray from this (he doesn't know about the bacon theme).
Can anyone think of a useful, yummy way to get bacon in a Black Forest cake without ruining it, but also being able to tell it is in there? My only thought was candied bacon in some of the whipped cream. I have to admit, I really cannot imagine it, and don't want to mess with it just for the sake of putting bacon in it.
