TAMPA — Need a pick-me-up after watching the Stanley Cup boat parade?
Just in time to celebrate the Tampa Bay Lightning’s second consecutive Stanley Cup championship, Tampa bakery Bake’n Babes is launching a decadent NHL-themed shake worthy of its own celebration.
In typical Bake’n Babes fashion (owner Julie Curry debuts a new over-the-top shake every month), the toppling Stanley Cup Works features a blue and white saccharine extravaganza of vanilla soft serve ice cream topped with blue and silver sprinkles, a vanilla cupcake with an NHL whistle, cotton candy, an Oreo ice cream sandwich, rock candy and a sparkler.
It doesn’t hurt that the championship parade passes right by the front lawn of Armature Works, where the bakery is located. Now that’s something to celebrate.
The shakes will be sold at the bakery on Monday until supplies run out.
