Cupcakes for Japan!! 日本のカップケーキ!

Ok so I'm not Japanese, but Google Translator helped me figure out how to say "Cupcakes for Japan"...

These were packaged carefully for Queens to Manhattan
Today I baked for an event called Rise Again: The Concert for Japan Earthquake Relief. There's going to be a bake sale of some sort (I admit I don't know all the details), but the main event consists of performances by various singers, dancers, and taiko drummers!

Apple Bacon Muffins with Maple Syrup Glaze


These muffins have pieces of apple and bacon in them and are NOT sweet, which is why I added a maple syrup glaze to balance the saltiness of the bacon. It makes for a delicious breakfast item. Next week, I shall attempt to turn these into donuts!! The recipe is from the Williams-Sonoma baking book, but I made a few minor changes here and there. Posted is my version of the recipe.

My first attempt at baking with bacon.
