The Magnolia Bakery unveiled the official Priscilla Queen of the Desert cupcake on March 8. “The Priscilla Cupcake” marks the first time in Magnolia’s history that a Broadway musical has inspired the creation of one of its world-famous desserts.


Based on Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner’s dancing cupcake costumes for the stage musical, the "pistachio cupcake with fluffy pistachio meringue butter cream is topped with a meringue kiss, bright edible confetti and iridescent 'disco dust!' [The musical's] dancing cupcakes magically twirl on stage during the performance of the dance floor classic 'MacArthur Park.'"

Sina Clark, vice president of operations at Magnolia Bakery, and chief baking officer and president Bobbie Lloyd created the recipe in collaboration with Magnolia owner and chief creative officer Tyra Abrams and creative director Linda Facci, who conceived its design.

Thom Allison, who portrays one of musical's dancing cupcakes, was on hand at Magnolia for the morning unveiling:
