Israel Idonije is getting in on Chicago's cupcake obsession.

The “Izzy Bear” cupcake – inspired by the Bears’ defensive end – will be available at Swirlz Cupcakes in Lincoln Park from now until October 6. The banana chocolate chip cupcake includes blue and orange gummy bears (Bears colors, obviously) and will benefit the Israel Idonije Foundation. Idonije will appear at Swirlz Tuesday at noon to serve his cupcakes and sign autographs.

Some of you might remember that Swirlz sold Kerry Wood-inspired cupcakes during the spring. Proceeds from the red velvet cupcakes went toward for the Wood Family Foundation.
