Whipped Bakeshop’s cupcake of the month was designed in honor of the story’s object of devotion. The Drunken Daisy cupcake is as sophisticated (and booze-happy) as Daisy Buchanan herself.
An almond pound cake is filled with housemade apricot preserves, then topped with apricot-brandy buttercream, sprinkled with coral sugar grains and dusted with gold glitter. These sweet snacks run $3.50 each and are available online (here) or by advance order at the Fishtown bakery. Even Leonardo DiCaprio couldn’t resist (215-598-5449).
