oh canada maple bacon cake


  • Servings: 1
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package white cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 slices maple-cured bacon, or more to taste
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, or as needed
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, or as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons red colored sugar, or as needed


    Cook Time: 40 mins Ready Time: 2 hrs 10 mins

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees f (175 degrees c). grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.
  • stir cake mix, water, oil, and eggs together in a large bowl until moistened; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. pour cake mixture into prepared pans.
  • bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes; cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. drain bacon slices on paper towels. when cool enough to handle, crumble bacon into a small bowl.
  • beat butter until creamy with an electric mixer in a bowl; slowly beat in 2 cups confectioners' sugar until well blended. beat maple syrup and vanilla extract into butter mixture until smooth and creamy; beat in remaining confectioners' sugar as needed until frosting mixture is a spreadable consistency. fold crumbled bacon into frosting.
  • place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread about 1/2 cup bacon frosting evenly over cake. place second cake layer over the first; spread remaining frosting evenly over sides and top of cake.
  • draw or print a maple leaf shape on a piece of paper. fold the page in half down the center of the leaf; cut along the outline so that you will have a hole in the paper in the shape of a maple leaf. center the paper on top of the frosted cake; press down slightly on the cut edges. sprinkle the open area with red sugar; gently remove the paper stencil.
