Dig Those Hoffa Cupcakes: Milford, MI

OK, this is sick. But it’s pretty darn funny, too… In the 6,300-person village of Milford, Michigan, 30 miles NW of Detroit, the Hoffa Cupcakes at the 80-year-old Milford Baking Co. restaurant are selling like hotcakes. For just 95¢ each, you get a chocolate cupcake, candy sprinkles that look like dirt, and a green plastic hand reaching up like Sissy Spacek’s hand in “Carrie.”

Milford is the site of an FBI investigation that may dig up a horse farm to search for Jimmy Hoffa’s remains, 31 years after he disappeared in an apparent murder. Read a story in the NY Times.
