    5. Set aside 5 pieces of bacon that have been roughly chopped. Sprinkle some bacon bits on top of one cake layer after frosting it. Another cake layer can be stacked on top and frosted and bacon sprinkled on top.
    6. Top the second cake layer with the third one. Finishing the cake by frosting its top and sides. Make sure the bacon strips cover the entire edge of the cake. Finish the cake by topping it with the remaining bacon bits. You'll enjoy it!
