It's usually an insult to figuratively describe any athlete as a "cupcake," but it has become a literal honor for Jayson Werth. No, really. As DC Sports Bog reports, the likeness of the bearded Washington Nationals slugger — who won Thursday's NLDS Game 4 against the Cardinals with a walkoff homer — has been turned into a delicious dessert by the fine folks at Fluffy Thoughts Cakes in McLean, Va.

Reports the Bog:

If you're in the neighborhood, you can stop by Stuckey's shop (1320 Old Chain Bridge Rd.) and pick one up for $5, which might be pricey for your average, clean-shaven cupcake. But this cupcake is clearly art.

The crew at Fluffy Thoughts is making them almost as fast as they're flying off the shelves.

"We keep selling out of them," Stuckey laughed. "But we'll be making them all day."

As a blog that's been a supporter of Werth's beard in good times and bad, this bring a proud tear to our eye. One year it's just a spring training curiosity, a few falls later it's an iconic confection being devoured by hungry baseball fans. It's the American dream, really.
