Kickass Cupcakes in Somerville to Introduce Celebrity Cupcake Series

A cupcake bakery in the Davis Square section of Somerville is getting ready to offer treats that pay homage to a few well-known folks.

An email from CBH Communications indicates that Sara Ross of Kickass Cupcakes is going to be rolling out a celebrity series of cupcakes, starting with "The Bund(t) Cake" (in reference to Gisele Bundchen), which debuts on Monday, March 5. Four other celebrity cupcakes will follow, including "The Screamin' Demon Cupcake" (Steven Tyler -- March 19), "The Triple Threat Cupcake" (Mark Wahlberg -- April 2), "The Town Cupcake" (Ben Affleck -- April 16), and "The How Do You Like Them Apples Cupcake" (Matt Damon - April 30). The flavors for each are shown below:
