Who needs a velvet box, when you have a red velvet cupcake? Cupcakes Gourmet, a Philadelphia area bakery, is offering a special Valentine’s Day cupcake with an 8ct diamond engagement ring from Warwick Jewelers valued at $55,000. If an 8ct diamond ring is a little out of reach, smaller versions are available. The companies are offering these sparkly sweets starting at a half carat. The diamond cupcakes will be offered all year round, and potential buyers get to select stones before purchasing.
