No cupcake has ever tasted quite like the BLT concoction at this tiny Gold Coast cupcakery: Sweet cake is filled with salty pieces of bacon, smeared with a savory ranch “icing” and topped with fresh tomato. It’s jarring at first, but it works so well that it’s perhaps the most convincing proof that cupcakes can swing both ways. Showcased in a glass display, the rotating selection (including classics like red velvet and chocolate) looks like art—because it is.
