Jack Daniel's Whiskey Chocolate Bacon Cake

Chocolate cake alone is a wonderful thing - but then add candied bacon, a little whiskey, and some sea salt, and you create a whole new realm of salty, sweet, boozy, chocolate goodness - catapulting your cake to a whole new level. This 4-layer chocolate cake filled with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream and candied bacon, frosted with a whiskey chocolate fudge, and topped with sea salt, made us feel like doing the jig (or was that the Jack?). We were dancing for joy once our fork met our mouth. Our Jack Daniel's Whiskey Experience Chocolate Bacon Cake naturally contains whiskey, and since it's in the frosting, you can adjust the strength of the whiskey to your specific liking. But believe us when we say that even you non-whiskey drinkers out there will be swooning over this cake.

For The Jack Daniel's Whiskey Chocolate Bacon Cake
To achieve a more organic look to your cake's frosting, begin with a smoothly frosted cake with even edges. This will serve as a nice base for decorating. Next take the small angled spatula, add some frosting, and apply a thin layer, moving the spatula in different directions as you ice the cake. Mess with the icing, moving it in different directions until you're happy
