Peanut Butter Banana Bacon “Elvis” Cake Bars


Elvis is and always will be the King Of Rock n’ Roll. I am a huge fan of Elvis, and wanted to pay homage to The King with the Elvis Cake. Elvis’ favourite flavour combination was peanut butter, bacon and bananas. They’re pretty great separate, but I was curious about how they would taste together.

Thus the Elvis cake was born!
