ROCHESTER HILLS (WWJ) – Rock-n-roll fans and anyone who loves a good cupcake will get their fill at the new Rockin’ CUPCAKES bakery/coffee shop in Rochester Hills. 

Co-owner Jim Ohngren dropped by the WWJ Newsradio 950 studios this week to give staffers a sample of their sweet treats. And, yummmm, they are so moist. They didn’t last long.

Pictured here are six of Rockin’ CUPCAKES’ 14 current menu items:

“Nights in White Satin” [middle left], “The White Album” [middle right]
“The King” [bottom left],  “New Kid in Town” [bottom right]

WWJ Newsradio 950’s Pat Sweeting talked with Ohngren talk about  the motive behind the new bakery and its menu.

Hear the interview:

Cupcakes are gradually replacing the traditional cake at wedding dinners. Just last year, we saw former first daughter Chelsea Clinton offer guests at her wedding rehearsal dinner a tier of cupcakes for dessert.

Last week, Ohngren presented a very special cupcake to Guns n’ Roses guitarist Slash who was at the Palace of Auburn Hills. It was chocolate and decorated with a top hat and guitar.
