Patti LaBelle Launches Two New Cakes At Walmart

image Before Thanksgiving, Patti LaBelle had debuted pattipies,a line of sweet potato pies at Walmart, which were only meant to be sold for a limited time. But after James Wright Chanel’s video review of her pie went viral, they flew off the shelves, causing Walmart to restock the dessert and make it available year-round. “We haven’t had so much excitement since we relaunched Twinkles,” said Kerry Robinson, Vice President for bakery and deli at Walmart. Hoping to capitalize of the success of Patti Pies,the singing legend and Walmart are teaming up again to launch two new products in January: a Vanilla Pound Cake and a Caramel Cake. The vanilla pound cake, weighing 1lb 14oz, is priced at $6.44 and hits stores on Jan 4, and the two-pound 14-ounce caramel cake launches on Jan.18 and retails for $13.94. “I have a hit pie,” LaBelle told BuzzFeed news.”I have other products that will do better now-the cakes, and more food coming out-because of the success of the pies.”
