Bioshock Cupcakes

Jocelyn of Snack or Die has done it again and created yet another confectionary gaming masterpiece. This time she tips her baking hat to last years epic FPS, Bioshock with some Big Daddy Cupcakes.

Bioshock Big Daddy Cupcakes

As usual she includes step by step instructions as well as images. I think its incredibly clever to use M&Ms as the lights on the Big Daddy helmet. The only thing I think I would change about this recipe is using licorice bands to create the mask. I know that they are the right choice to create the texture and form, but Im just not a fan of black licorice. I would probably try to make some thin chocolate bands and even though they wouldnt be as sturdy as the licorice, they would be a lot more tasty.

Now I just need to figure out how to make a Gingerbread Little Sister to go along with my Big Daddy Cupcakes…

SackBoy Cupcakes

Dammit Snack or Die! You need to stop making cute video game confections!

Yesterday they posted up the most adorable Sackboy Cupcakes.

As usual there are full instructions for making these adorable chocolate wonders. Personally I would want to try to figure out how to make a body for these too…because it would just be awesome to decorate the clothes for a bunch of little sack people.

The Bacon Equation

I may have gotten a C in Algebra, but if theres one thing I know, its that bacon + anything = win, I call it the Bacon Equation.  A few minutes ago one of my coworkers let me try a Bacon Olive Spread his wife made and let me tell you, it was heaven.  A quick search on google yielded a few Bacon Olive Spread recipes, but none seem to have the flavor profile of the one I just tried.  This one tasted both vinegary, salty and sweet all at once while many other recipes seem to stick to the salty savory profile.  Im guessing it was made with Spanish olives blended with hickory smoked bacon and a balsamic reduction of sorts.  I willl experiment with this recipe and report back.  Until then, please enjoy proof of the Bacon Equation.

Bacon Vodka

Perfect for Bacon Martinis or Bacon Bloody Marys

Bacon Doughnut

Perfect for heart attacks…delicious heart attacks.

Bacon Ice Cream

I have a recipe for this myself that I will share shortly…I just want to know why Ben and Jerrys has not come out with their own bacon ice cream! Sadly that photo is a photoshop…and a dream.

Bacon Salt

I would put this on everything and I mean EVERYTHING. Think of it, bacon salted edamame…droool.

Bacon Chocolate

The fabled and eloquently exquisite bacon chocolate bar. I have been blessed to partake in the Vosges Bacon Chocolate bar and it is a sublime blend of bitter dark chocolate and sweet salty bacon. My only complaint is that it needs more bacon.

Bacon S’mores

This is my own concoction inspired by the Bacon Chocolate. Unfortunately it was dark out so I couldnt quite get a good image, but heres a picture of me cooking the bacon over an open flame. I then took it and wrapped it around a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow. Words cannot describe how delicious this was. I’ll do a proper blog later with nice pictures of this delicacy.
