Boulder’s Tee & Cakes has been getting a lotta love for itsÂ unusually flavored bacon cupcakes–yes, you read thatÂ right. On Saturdays, the hipster bakery whips up dozens of maple-flavored cupcakes topped with chocolate ganache and crumbled smoked bacon. Sounds strange, until you discover that each bite has a pleasant balance of salty and sweet–just the flavors we like in the slightly bizarre Mo’s Bacon Bar by Vosges Chocolate.Â
Bonus:Â In other national nods, several local businesses have recently garnered attention, includingÂ Boulder’sÂ Icebox BakeryÂ (CookieÂ magazine), culinary tourismÂ guruÂ Peggy Markel, Denver’sÂ Devries Chocolate(Food & Wine),Â and Lyons’Â Dale’s Pale AleÂ (Bon AppÃ©tit).
