It's not every 7-year-old who has a cupcake created and sold in her honor, but Catasauqua bakery Blondies has done just that for Laela Moyer. The Whitehall girl is the reigning winner of a pageant in Piscataway, N.J., called Pieces of Me.

Rebecca Zukowski, owner of the Catasauqua cupcake shop, worked with Laela to create a new cupcake called Laela's Pageant Princess.

The new cupcake was unveiled at the Front Street cupcake bakery and restaurant July 20.
