A bakery was inspired by Selena to create pastry in honor of the late music icon’s birthday on April 16. The concha sold out within an hour with pre-orders for the unique pastry in honor of the Queen of Cumbia’s birthday.


Abuelita’s Bakery Spot in Kyle, Texas, began taking orders for the limited quantity purple rose-topped concha on Friday, but orders filled quickly for Sunday pickup orders of the pastry priced at $3.50.

The bakery commented via social media, “Wow, you all have absolutely amazed us with your continuous support! Y’all sold us out in an hour and have reached our teams capacity! Thank you all once again! See you all Sunday!”

Selena was an American singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s among Mexican Americans and Mexicans, and her popularity quickly grew across U.S. and international Latino markets. Selena played for crowds of 80,000 and won a GRAMMY for Best Mexican American Album in 1994. At the time of her death, Selena was recording her first album in English, her native language, and had opened several fashion boutiques. She was killed on March 31, 1995, by the president of her fan club, who also managed her clothing stores. Selena was 23.

Abuelita’s Bakery Spot is located at 21511 IH-35, Suite 101, in Kyle, Texas. More information and bakery orders available at
