DETROIT (CBS Detroit) So, what do you eat to celebrate the Detroit Tigers impending trip to the World Series (fingers crossed, of course)?

Make it sweet for a sweet season ending.

With buttercream frosting tinted blue and orange, Just Baked is selling Tigers-themed cupcakes for $2.50 each at all its area locations.

Available in chocolate, vanilla and red velvet, they’re decorated with Olde English Ds and baseballs.

Pam Turkin, the company’s chief cupcake officer said Wednesday they were selling as fast as they arrived in stores.

“We actually have four full-time wonderful regular cake decorators that have been working on these all week — gotta do it right, right?” Turkin said.

Some would call them bakers, others would call them all-stars.

Fan reaction was immediate, with hundreds of “likes” and comments on the Michigan-based company’s Facebook page praising the Tigers-themed goodies.

Fan Melissa Bowen Allure wrote: “I bought one of these on Friday and took it to my son at school for his lunch! He loved it!”

The Tigers take on the Yankees for the fourth game in the ALCS series at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Hear it live on 97.1 The Ticket or streaming through CBS Detroit HERE.
