The [Almost] Fat Elvis Cupcakes

SUN/MON - Hung out with my cousin and made cupcakes at 1 am with his awesome girlfriend. Not many people would agree to making cupcakes topped with candied bacon.
Boxed chocolate cupcakes, homemade peanut butter frosting and.... candied bacon. All we needed was banana chips and they would've been the perfect Fat Elvis Cupcakes.

Peanut Butter Frosting

1/2 cup butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup cream

In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in 1/2 of the confectioners' sugar. Mix in 1/4 cup  of cream. Beat in the remaining confectioners' sugar. If necessary, add a little more cream or milk until the frosting reaches a good spreading consistency. Makes enough to frost 20 cupcakes. [from]

Later Monday Morning
Ended up going to sleep around 4 am but only for 30 minutes at a time (at the most).  Around 5:40, just as I was about to fall asleep for real, my Aunt woke up. Then for some reason I just couldn't fall asleep. Ms. Sleep-All-Day was up at 6 am. And everyone else stayed in bed.
