EaterWire: Happy B-Day, Elvis! Cupcakes, Smoking Bans

New, 12 comments

SWEET, SWEET ELVIS: Elvis Presley would've celebrated his 74th birthday today, and the cupcakeries have taken it upon themselves to commemorate the King inspired by his favorite sandwich. Sprinkles has a mini banana cake with peanut butter frosting and a gold star (available today only), and Crumbs has a gooey banana-flavored yellow cake filled with banana cream topped with a swirl of banana butter cream and peanut butter frosting. It's like cute, clean-cut Elvis vs. the older Elvis that you couldn't help but love no matter how bloated he looked. [EaterWire]

SMOKERS: Keeping up with the smoking bans in other cities, lighting up on outdoor patios at cafes and coffee shops may be a thing of the past in Los Angeles, as soon as this summer if the City Council votes accordingly. Bars with outdoor areas would be exempt, so you drinkers don't have to worry. Should any smoker need help with your New Year's resolution to quit, the picture in the LA Times article might work.
