“Less than 24 hours after the self-proclaimed “King of Pop’s” death, sales of Michael Jackson’s albums have shot through the roof. But how many cupcakes can he sell?”
Michael Jackson’s death has created a high demand for the”Michael Jackson” cupcake sold by Hey Cupcake, a local Austin cupcakery, which gained fame by selling cupcakes out of a funky Airstream trailer topped with a trademark pink cupcake.
The Michael Jackson cupcake is a chocolate cupcake topped with cream cheese icing and chocolate sprinkles. [It was blogged in our morning cupcake memorial to the late King of Pop.]
According to Hey Cupcake’s owner, Wes Hurt, sales of the cupcake have been overwhelming, which encouraged him to keep the celebrity cupcake item on the current cupcake menu.
It’s a sweet tribute to the entertainer.
