WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It's long been said that bacon makes everything taste better. Coastal Cupcakes has taken that to whole a new level. Today, the Wilmington cupcakery served up its bacon cupcake. Fans have counted down on Facebook for this rare treat. It only appears as a special when the demand is high. The salty and sweet dessert isn't for everyone, but those who love it, can't get enough. "It is like the best pancake maple syrup side of bacon that you can ever have," bacon cupcake lover Jamie Moncrief said. In addition to walk-ins, coastal cupcakes prepared six dozen pre-ordered cupcakes. That's a lot for one flavor. Despite the popularity of the bacon cupcake, it won't be a menu mainstay. Co-owner Kristen Beckmeyer says it needs to stay special.
