"I was with a coworker and said 'I’m going to put a hurricane on a cake!'" Jessica Gouin, a Publix cake decorator in Neptune Beach, told ABC Action News. "They took off after I put them in our display case. I haven’t stopped making them yet."

The National Hurricane Center announced Thursday morning that Hurricane Dorian could make landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm.

Gouin said she understands how serious Florida residents should be taking Hurricane Dorian, and that she's just glad everyone has enjoyed her cakes as mush as she's enjoyed making them.

"It makes my heart happy bringing people joy or a smile during these stressful times," Gouin said.

The Hurricane Dorian buttercream and coolie cakes have been sold for 10.99 and the fudge cakes for 11.99. It's important to note that these cakes are not being sold at all locations.
