Turns out Jack is on his Cupcake & Bicycle tour around the U.S., and Portland is just one of many stops on his journey. (He doesn't ride the whole way. For most of the miles, "Ms. Cupcake and the Three Twins" travel in the back of Jack's van.)
When he's not touring the country with his cupcake bike, Jack works as a prop builder, sculpture maker, and painter for the Natural History Museum in New York City. So how'd he end up pedaling around a giant cupcake?
"A friend's band was playing down lower east side of Manhattan and a buddy of mine asked me to do something visual for a nearby cake shop. My girlfriend at the time like strawberry cupcakes so I came up with a cupcake."

You can like Cupcake and Bicycle on Facebook, where the photos below are from, and I will say that when Jack is back in New York City I'd love to meet him and share a cupcake and hear more about his adventures!
