The Band Perry Pioneers Their Own Cupcake

The Band Perry  may well have accomplished a feat unique to them as country artists: their own namesake cupcake.

On Fridays and Saturdays during April, you’ll be able to buy the Very Perry Chocolate Cherry Cupcake at Gigi’s locations all across the country. While the flavor was inspired by the girl who wants to “change [her] name to Cherry” from the  Pioneer  song “I’m A Keeper,” the trio narrowed down the specifics during a tasting.

“I really couldn’t tell after trying the first one,”  Neil Perry  jokes. “I had to eat several just to make sure. You know, quality control and all.”

In the end, The Band Perry combined several choices, deciding on a cherry-chunked cake batter, with chocolate icing with a cherry on top.

Reid  says The Band Perry’s excellence in the cupcake arena may turn out to be a problem.  “They are delicious,” he says. “So delicious, that I will be running the stairs after all of our shows now!” 

Gigi’s will also be selling copies of the band’s sophomore CD,  Pioneer , along with their cupcake creation.
