In true “Pioneer” fashion, The Band Perry pushes the envelope once more and has become the first recording artists to have a Gigi’s cupcake named after them. The new cupcake called, VERY PERRY CHOCOLATE CHERRY, was inspired by The Band Perry’s new music, a song in particular called “I’m A Keeper,” from the band’s iTunes Country chart topping CD, PIONEER.
Kimberly Perry explains, “When we heard that we might have a Gigi’s cupcake named after us we knew right away what the flavor would be. There is a song on our new album that has a line in it that says, ‘I’m gonna change my name to Cherry….,’ so we decided that the cupcake had to be some kind of a cherry cupcake.”
“When Gigi brought the cupcakes by for us to taste them, she provided two cherry versions for us to sample and then offer our opinions on. I really couldn’t tell after trying the first one, so I had to eat several just to make sure. You know, quality control and all,” says Neil Perry with a big smile.
“We decided to take both versions of the cherry cupcakes and combine them. What came out of that is a cherry batter cake, with chunks of cherry topped with chocolate icing, and a cherry on top. They are delicious. So delicious, that I will be running the stairs after all of our shows now!” laughs Reid Perry.
"I’m so excited to be working with The Band Perry! They are very talented and we had a blast creating the Very Perry Chocolate Cherry cupcake. Our fans are going to love it- just as much as Kimberly, Reid, and Neil do!" says Gina Butler, “Gigi.”
Gigi’s will be selling VERY PERRY CHOCOLATE CHERRY two days a week in all of their stores nationwide, but that’s not the only treat for patrons. Cupcake lovers can enjoy some great music by The Band Perry while they are visiting Gigi’s and they can purchase the new CD PIONEER right there in the Gigi’s store.http://www.countryschatter.com/2013/04/the-band-perry-gets-their-own-gigis-cupcake-namesake/NewsPress Releasecherry on top,gigi,namesake,new music,photo credit,pioneer,smile
