Ingredients

Maple Cream Cheese Frosting:
Maple-Glazed Turkey Bacon:

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a mini cupcake or muffin pan with 24 mini cupcake liners or a regular-size cupcake or muffin pan with 9 cupcake liners.

Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium-size bowl. Set the bowl aside.

In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together, about 5 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and then add the vanilla and one egg at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition. Turn the mixer to the lowest speed, and add the flour mixture and sour cream, alternating between the 2, beginning and ending with the flour.

Mix the cinnamon and brown sugar together in a small bowl and fold by hand into the batter. Do not fully mix into the batter, it should be swirled in.

Fill 24 mini cupcake liners 1/2-full with batter and bake for 30 minutes or fill 9 regular-size cupcakes 3/4-full with batter and bake for 32 minutes, or until golden and baked through. Cool the cupcakes completely.

To assemble: Generously frost the top of each cupcake with the maple cream cheese mixture. Chop the maple-glazed turkey bacon into a fine dice and divide evenly among the cupcakes, sprinkle over the frosting. Sprinkle the maple sugar on top of the bacon to resemble "sand".

Maple Cream Cheese Frosting:

Whip the cream cheese and maple butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment until fully incorporated. Fold in, by hand, the jelly and fresh strawberries. Put the frosting into a pastry bag and cut 1/2-inch off the tip.

Maple-Glazed Turkey Bacon:

Cook the bacon on the stove top in 2 nonstick skillets coated with olive oil spray, over medium heat, turning once, making sure the bacon is fully cooked. Turn the heat down and divide the maple syrup between the 2 skillets, drizzle the syrup over the bacon. Continue to cook, turning the bacon often, watching closely that the syrup does not burn. You want the bacon to be coated with the syrup and caramelized, but not soggy. Let cool.
