If you build it, they will come.

That’s what happened with Bake’n Babes, a bakery inside Tampa’s Hall on Franklin that created a special milkshake in tribute to rapper-singer Lizzo leading up to her concert Tuesday at the Yuengling Center.

The “Freak Shake,” as it was dubbed, is a gargantuan milkshake topped with candy, a cupcake, a Lizzo cookie and a flaming sparkler. This thing isn’t a snack — it’s the whole dang meal.

And Lizzo herself couldn’t resist it.

The Truth Hurts rapper posted an Instagram video on Tuesday afternoon from the Hall on Franklin, sampling the sweet monstrosity and singing her hit Juice into a fake microphone.

“S/O to @bakenbabes for this 100% THAT BITCH milkshake... it definitely brought all the boys to the yard," Lizzo wrote on Instagram.

Bake’n Babes responded appropriately, meaning they freaked the Freak Shake out on Instagram.

“WE DID IT Y’ALL,” they wrote. “LIZZO CAME TO GET HER FREAK SHAKE!”

We’ll see what she says about it from the stage at tonight’s show.
