(WXYZ) — Everywhere you look, there's Sen. Bernie Sanders — donning a beige parka and a pair of knitted mittens.

As his Inauguration Day fashion continues to take the internet by storm, and because the memes continue to be the gifts that keep on giving, one local bakery has decided to take the fun one step further by sticking Bernie on a cupcake.

M Street Baking Company in Howell now has Bernie Sanders cupcakes for sale. Co-owner Emily Mazaris said just hours after putting a post out on social media, the bakery has already sold 129 packs.

"We try to stay as trendy as possible, so obviously there’s been a lot of memes going around," said Mazaris. "I think we were surprised, we just like to make things all the time for fun."

When you place an orderfor Bernie cupcakes, you can choose the flavor and Bernie comes as an edible image. Each six-pack is $18.

Mazaris, who owns the bakery with her sister, said the pandemic has been tough on everyone, but they are glad they've been able to maintain their full staff of 55 employees.

"We’re extremely grateful right now," she said.

M Street Baking Company sells a variety of baked goods from edible cookie dough to cookies to cakes to milkshakes and much more.

"Most people know us for our milkshakes," said Mazaris. "A lot of people are surprised to see that we are a full bakery."

M Street Baking Company is open Thursday - Sunday from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.
