Kardashian cupcakes? No thanks.


When I saw these cupcakes at Gelson’s Market in Sherman Oaks, I thought it was some kind of joke. But it was in Los Angeles after all and I guess anything goes there. Even cupcakes by a gaggle of faux-celebs whose only reason for fame is by who they date/marry and their reality t.v. series. Unfortunately my low resolution cell phone camera doesn’t accurately show all of the Kardasian girls on the label and in what I deem in a ridiculous pose that would be better suited for say, a perfume ad. Besides, I don’t bring my full-sized camera into grocery stores, although I’ve spotted Sherilyn Fenn, Lance Henricksen, the dancing dwarf from “Twin Peaks” and Mac Scorpio from General Hospital there on previous occasions.

Their brand of cupcakes — Famous Cupcakes — were on sale for $8.79 (originally $9.99) for 12 mini cupcakes. Choices include red velvet, hot chocolate and “va-va-vanilla.” The cupcakes are also available fresh from two locations in Los Angeles as noted on their Web site. As for me, I’m going to stay away from any celebrity-endorsed grocery product even if it is cupcakes.
