Publix stores in Florida are selling Hurricane Irma - themed cakes and they've caused a stir on social media.

Miama radio talk show personality Andy Slater Tweeted a pic of a Hurricane Irma cake at a Publix grocery store, via Fox News.

The post inspired other people to share their own photos of Irma cakes throughout Florida, all allegedly from Publix.

Many on social media seem more pleasantly surprised and amused by the 'hurri - cakes' than upset. Do you think Publix is profiting from a disaster or just trying to lighten the mood? I know I'd be happy to have one of those cakes if I was hunkered down somewhere in Florida right now. Tell us what you think here.
