Banana Cake Ingredients:
– 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 2 large eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large)
– 1/2 cup buttermilk

Peanut Butter Frosting:
– 1 cup creamy peanut butter
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
– 1/4 cup heavy cream
– 1 tsp vanilla extract

Gold Sugar Bacon Dust Topping:
– 4 slices thick-cut bacon
– 2 tablespoons brown sugar
– Edible gold sanding sugar (for sprinkling)
– Elvis-printed edible wafer medallions


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cupcake pans with liners.

2. Make the banana cake: Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then vanilla. Alternate folding in flour mixture and buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Fold in mashed bananas until just combined.

3. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full with batter. Bake 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely.

4. Make peanut butter frosting: Beat peanut butter and butter until smooth. Gradually mix in confectioners’ sugar until fully incorporated. Beat in cream and vanilla until light and fluffy.

5. Make bacon dust: Cook bacon until crispy, then finely crumble. Toss with brown sugar to coat evenly.

6. Frost cooled cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. Sprinkle generously with sugared bacon crumbles. Top with edible Elvis medallions.

7. For extra razzle dazzle, lightly sprinkle with edible gold sanding sugar.

These groovy cupcakes are guaranteed to have your wedding guests All Shook Up!

The moist banana cake, creamy peanut butter frosting, and salty-sweet bacon crunch create a harmonic flavor blend that would make The King swoon. Don’t be surprised if you hear the opening riff of “Jailhouse Rock” as you take that first banana-peanut buttery bite!
