Tale Tuesday: a happy pig for the holy cow

What could make cupcakes better? Well, not much...especially when the cute little cakes come from the ovens at Holy Cow, Cupcakes! in Carmel, Indiana.

After Karen von Kamecke Sutton and her husband Sean started offering her festive cupcakes at a Carmel Farmers Market booth, the special orders and catering requests started rolling in. Thanks to their storefront location--now with an expended cafe for enjoying in-house coffees and their other pastries--the couple and their staff frost a rotating selection of tempting and inventive cupcakes six days a week.

But our favorite cupcake day has to be Saturday, because that's the day Holy Cow, Cupcakes! makes their Maple-Bacon Cupcake. The rich cake and maply frosting is crowned with our Applewood Smoked Bacon for a sweet-salty treat we crave. Folks can place special orders for a Maple-Bacon Cupcakes with Smoking Goose Bacon or stop by Karen's shop early on Saturdays since these sweet bacon bites always sell out.

Here comes the bride: Holy Cow, Cupcakes! wedding display.
And look for Smoking Goose Bacon in other tantalizing treats that are still on the drawing board from Holy Cow, Cupcakes. "The cupcake is just the jumping off point for us," Karen says. "We plan to do bacon scones, bacon cinnamon rolls, and maple frosting shooters with bacon." It's not just for breakfast anymore!
