Alexandria bakery creates a culinary tribute http://wwno.org/post/bacon-app-tit-alexandria-bakery-creates-culinary-tribute Saturday is International Bacon Day and an Alexandria bakery has celebrated all week long. Atwood’s Bakery introduced the salty delight into more than 30 menu items, mostly desserts. This is the bakery’s first Baconfest since opening in 1977. General manager Jennifer Atwood credits her 10-year-old bacon-obsessed son for encouraging her to branch out with her recipes. And she did – creating bacon cookies, truffles, cheesecake, and even an Elvis cupcake made with chocolate chips, fresh bananas and topped with a peanut butter cream and a crumbling of apple wood smoked bacon.
