Did somebody say “bacon festival” and I did not get invited? Wait, you have a bacon cake. Stop the presses, I am on a direct flight to Vernon, Texas to celebrate and get myself a whopping slice of bacon cake. Darn, my cardiologist just called, I need to do a stress test, forget that plane ticket. You can celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wright Brand with a bacon cake for a limited time. Let them eat bacon! Eat bacon the Wright way! Is there ever a right way to eat bacon? You can purchase the bacon cake in select markets online, while supplies last.
Everyone knows that everything tastes better with bacon. As Wright Brand’s 100th anniversary year nears conclusion, the brand has created a first-of-its-kind savory cake featuring the mouthwatering experience of their thick-cut, real wood-smoked bacon. Introducing the Bacon Cake – four pounds of decadent goodness, with layers of cheddar scallion cornbread, sandwiched together with a sweet corn bacon filling. The delectable cake is topped with a salted hot honey cream cheese bacon spread, and of course, Wright Brand Bacon. The limited-edition bacon cake is available for purchase in select markets online, while supplies last.
The brand team partnered with Darnell Reed, chef and owner of Chicago-based to develop the perfect recipe. In addition to the Southern-inspired ingredients, the Wright Brand Bacon Cake features bacon rosettes and 1.5 pounds of bacon incorporated throughout the cake.
“Turning 100 is a major milestone and we wanted to do something big to close out our year-long celebration,” Cal Tharp, senior brand manager for Wright Brand bacon. “We kicked off our anniversary by launching a bacon-inspired fragrance and later in the year took over the town where the brand was founded, Vernon, Texas, with a one-day bacon festival. The only thing missing was the cake! We wanted to give people a way to celebrate our centennial with us in a way that feels Wright Brand distinctly.”
