Cupcakes Gourmet, a Philadelphia-area "couture cupcake shop," is selling a $55,000 red velvet cupcake. The new Sparkling Red Velvet Cupcake features an eight-carat diamond engagement ring from Warwick Jewelers, based in nearby Exton, Pa.

The very special cupcake will be available for year-round order. And cheaper smaller variations of the Sparkling Red Velvet Cupcake are available year round, starting at a carat and a half.

Individuals interested in ordering the cupcake must call any of the three Cupcakes Gourmet locations at least three days in advance to schedule a viewing with the participating jeweler. The special cupcake is not available through Cupcake Gourmet's online store.

"There's no sweeter way to pop the question to your significant other than with a dreamy cupcake with a diamond engagement ring sitting on top," said Maki Garcia-Evans, owner and executive pastry chef at Cupcakes Gourmet.
