    Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Place bacon on cookie sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked completely. Transfer to paper towel to drain. Crumble. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups.

    In medium bowl, place Bisquick mix. In 2-cup measuring cup, beat buttermilk, eggs, 2 tablespoons syrup and the vanilla with whisk. Pour over Bisquick mix. Add up to 2 more tablespoons maple syrup if more maple flavor is desired. Stir in one-third of the crumbled bacon. Divide batter among muffin cups. Sprinkle with additional bacon, reserving some for garnish.

    In medium bowl, beat Frosting ingredients until smooth. Place frosting in decorating bag fitted with tip. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle with remaining bacon.

  • Cut cooking parchment paper into 3- to 4-inch squares to use as paper liners instead of using paper baking cups.
  • For a fun alternative, make mini and dunk in syrup, skipping the frosting.
