Savory yumminess!

The savory challenge had a nice turnout of cupcake enthusiasts. I'm happy with the response Iron Cupcake: Chicago is getting from the locals. I think we might have groupies...ha ha ha. We had nine entries of savory goodness to sample.
Pancake and Bacon Cupcakes were one of my two entries.

Melissa, who is one of our veteran bakers, took the gold. Her Pumpkin Sage Ravioli Cupcakes was everyone's favorite for taste and presentation.
