The ‘Cumbercupcake’ Exists and We Can’t Wait to Get Our Hands on One

Attention, Cumberbitches: we’ve found your new favorite dessert.
It’s no secret that Benedict Cumberbatch, star of the BBC’s Sherlock and the new drama The Imitation Game, has a ravenous fan base. But these “Cumbercupcakes” just might be our new favorite edible fan art.
Made by a fan who goes by “cumbermuffin” on Twitter, this version especially delighted us since it’s modeled after a photo shoot from the pages of PEOPLE. (Check out Cracking the Cumberbatch Code for more photos!)
We have to admit that it’s a spot-on replica — down to the hand placement, buttoned black vest, tiny gray-faced watch and tousled hair.
Of course, if you can’t stand the thought of eating the adorable Cumberbatch topper, you can also order a clay version to break out for every season premiere.
Perhaps the next Sherlock episode calls for a batch of A Study in Scarlet-inspired red velvet cupcakes.
