A Trip to Graceland cupcake at the Cupcakery

Ask for the bacon cupcake at the Cupcakery and you will be rewarded with an ode to Elvis. A chunky peanut-butter cupcake is topped with a towering dollop of banana frosting. Yes, it could stop there, but since everything is better with bacon—even your cupcake—the frosting is then rolled in crispy real bacon bits and drizzled with honey. $3 each, subject to availability; 7175 W. Lake Mead Blvd., Suite 118; 9680 S. Eastern Ave., Suite 100; and in the Monte Carlo.
