and it is sooooo good that it made me swoon.
Seriously. Every Thanksgiving, I'm the dessert person in the family. The past years, rather than go with pumpkin pie, I've done Ina Garten's pumpkin roulade (which is always a tremendous success)...last year I entertained the kids by making Chowhounds own Salted Caramel Frosting on chocolate cupcakes. This year, I've already made the salted caramel for the chocolate cupcakes and the vanilla cupcakes will be frosted with the bacon frosting.
My sons are big fans of "Bacon Explosion" so I thought it would be humourous to make some bacon frosting. It really IS the perfect combination of salty and sweet and I cannot wait to have the family's reaction--I can tell you my daughter absolutely refuses to try it!
So what about you guys--anyone making any "outside the box" desserts? Really curious!
