Dear Santa,

"Neiman Marcus the luxury retail store based in Dallas has for the last 83 years produced a Christmas book featuring their most lavish products and this year is no exception. The Cupcake Car that is for sale for $25,000.00 in the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalogue. Launched at Burning Man as a cooperative art car project, the Cupcake Car sprang from the mind of Bay Area artist Lisa Pongrace. The top speed is a safe 7mph. The Cupcake Car is made of a 24-volt electric motor, a heavy-duty battery, sheet metal, wire, fabric, wood and mad genius."
Dear Santa Claus,
I have been a very good girl this year and instead of bringing me a boring Vespa, please bring me a delightful Cupcake Car. I prefer the pink one, but I'm not picky. No one in DC has one of these and I would like to be a trendsetter. Please do not deliver it to my Ohio home....I would never be able to get CJ out of it.
p.s. Don't forget the matching hat! I can't drive a cupcake without the proper safety equipment.


  1. .....why just one, Colleen, cupcakes come by the dozen!!!!!!!!Cute idea, but try again....Mom

  2. Seriously, can you even imagine how awesome a FLEET of these would be driving through Capitol Hill??? I would surely get el presidente's attention and then tell him exactly what I think of US/Guatemala relations! Essentially, world peace is contingent upon me driving around in a cupcake. Think about it.

  3. if I didn't know better, I'd say you have way to much time on your hands. Maybe you need a part time job as a DC tour director. lol dad

  4. I would need a red hat if I drove one....mammaw
