Cake Byte: Bacon Bakery Opening in NYC

Cupcakes and Bacon with Cocktails

File under "wow, it's finally happened": a bacon themed bakery is opening. In New York City.

As I learned from the New York Daily News,  

Books of Wonder, the Chelsea bookstore that bills itself as the "largest and oldest children's bookstore and the city's leading specialist in children's literature," can now lay claim to another distinction: It is playing host to the Baconery, a previously online-only outfit that specializes in bacon-themed sweets. Its unambiguous creed is "Everything tastes better with bacon."

This is a marriage made in lard.  

While Books of Wonder already has a cafe that supplies, among other delicacies, treats from uptown's Alice's Tea Cup, it is now entering a whole new world of grease.

So, what can we expect to see on the menu? A visit to the Baconery website suggests bacon brownies, chocolate peanut butter bacon cookies, Bacon Marshmallow bars, and -- wow -- chocolate covered bacon "with bacon".
