Valentine’s Day 2012: $55,000 diamond ring in cupcakes and Pizza Hut engagement promotion
For this Valentine’s Day, a bakery in Pennsylvania is offering cupcakes decorated in eight carat engagement rings, delicately fitting each cake’s whipped icing with a surprising diamond sparkler.
The bakers say there’s no better way to showcase their store’s motto, “love tastes like this”, than this diamond-topped treat.
“What could be sweeter than asking your special someone to marry you than with a red velvet cupcake?” Maki Garcia-Evans, Cupcakes Gourmet owner and executive pastry chef told KSLA-TV.
The dazzling bobble provided by Pennsylvania-based Warwick Jewelers is offering the rings at a 15% discount when sold through the bakery’s Valentine’s day offer.
“We wanted to do a statement piece that when people see it they would say, <<wow, I can’t believe this is a $55,000 beautiful ring>>” Warwick Jewelers marketing manager Brittany Burkland told KSLA.
Brittany Burland reasons no sweeter way to pop the question.
Named as one of the four best couture bake shops in the nation in 2011 by Brides magazine, the bakery takes great pride in each individual cupcake made from scratch and by hand.
“What I love most about it is when people eat them and they just feel loved you know,” Maki Garcia-Evans said, “and that’s what it’s really all about”.
With no two women being the same, Pizza Hut is also offering their own Valentine’s Day engagement promotion of a $10,010 dinner box with their own provided ring and meal.
The proposal package features a red ruby ring, limousine service, flowers, personal fireworks show, photographer and videographer, as well as a $10 pizza, breadsticks and cinnamon sticks dinner box.
As a courtesy-safety net to buyers provided by the pizza chain, if the package is not used before March 31 of this year, they say they’ll refund the entire cost.
The packages are limited to one per person.
