I've heard that eating eggplant Parmesan can put you into labor, but I have never heard of a cupcake to be labor inducing. Apparently, there is a cupcake shop in Charlottesville that has many overdue pregnant women flocking. Why? Because they have a cupcake that can supposedly jump-start labor!
Cappellino's Crazy Cakes makes a Lemon Drop Cupcake that mothers swear if eaten, will put you into labor. So far, a total of 19 pregnant women have eaten this cupcake and have gone into labor. A few even went into labor just hours after eating one! There are even some OBGYNs in the Charlottesville area sending their overdue mamas to the shop to eat a Lemon Drop Cupcake!
This wonderous cupcake has even medical experts stumped. Owner of Cappellino's Crazy Cakes, Dotty, says, "the only thing different about this lemon drop is I like freshness and so I put fresh lemon juice and fresh lemon zest. That's the only difference."
The Lemon Drop Cupcake is huge seller for Cappellino's Crazy Cakes, and Dotty makes sure to have a fresh batch on hand every single day… just incase an overdue, desperate pregnant woman should walk through her doors in need of some help.
What do you think? Would you try one? I'm thinking if I get to the point where I'm overdue, I'm calling this cupcake shop up and asking if they will FedEx me some cupcakes!
