Beer Bacon Cheese Cupcake

Life isn't perfect; I'll be honest, these cupcakes don't taste as good as they may look.

I'd been waiting all week to make these cupcakes, to try something savoury for once, especially since my boyfriend loves beer, bacon AND cheese.



Yet, I happily dissected the cupcake for taste tests, only to find that there was no taste of beer nor grated cheese, which my brother even mistook for raisins. The texture was great, sure, but the taste was plain and normal. This was a huge disappointment considering the wafts of nice smelling light beer cupcakes from the oven. Where did the beer go?



I just thought I should be honest, and tell myself it's okay to fail. Not every one of my creations work, but that's part and parcel of life I suppose.
