For the cupcake lover that has everything..

The cupcake car - a snip at $25,000!! Yes that's right $25, 000!!

Currently for sale at Neiman Marcus;

Put on your matching hat, slip under the muffin top of your Cupcake Car, and let the world figure itself out for awhile. Get (or give) the sheer, joyful chaos of a gift that is mind-blowing, triple-dog-dare, double-infinity forever cool. Make the kids or grandkids literally squeal with joy. Bring it to work and buzz the breakroom. Crash parades! Putter about the ‘hood. Ever had a crowd of kids chasing after you just for the crazy gleeful heck of it? (No worries, the top speed is a comfy-safe 7 mph.) What’s it made of? A 24-volt electric motor, a heavy-duty battery, sheet metal, wire, fabric, wood…and mad genius. Launched at Burning ManSM as a cooperative art car project, the Cupcake Car sprang from the fevered mind of Bay Area artist Lisa Pongrace and her less-rules-more-laughs posse of artists and techno geeks. Yours will be tricked out with your favorite topping, so start thinking flavors.

I LOVE the thought of anyone "puttering about the 'hood" in one of these - I can just imagine the looks you'd get driving through New Cross or Peckham in And I adore the fact you can get it pimped to resemble your favourite cupcake...pimp my cupcake on MTV anyone?

This is one cupcake fad I can't really see catching on!

Genius. Reminds me of the bloke who used to drive around Shepherds Bush on a sofa with standard lamp attached.
