Celebrating Elvis's 76th Birthday
My wife and I are celebrating the King of Rock 'n Roll's birthday today by going to splurge on our favorite cupcakes from The Cup. A cupcake specialty store, The Cup makes these seasonal cupcakes around the dates of Elvis Presley's birthday and death date. The cupcakes are a combination of peanut butter and buttercream icing slathered on a banana cake cupcake.
Some people celebrate the King of Rock 'n Roll by going to see an Elvis Presley impersonator or others make a pilgrimage to Graceland in Memphis, TN or other sites like Sun Studios or the RCA studios in Nashville. Do you celebrate Elvis Presley's birthday? If so, please let us know in the comments section.
I think that the other end of our tradition should be to get the "All Shook Up" concrete (my wife's favorite) from Ted Drewes on the date of Presley's death in August. I'm going to put that on the calendar right now!
