Football Player Birthday Cake Is Strange Choice JT February 1, 2013 Desserts, Sports In just a few days, most of us will be celebrating the biggest secular holiday of the calendar year. Sunday is the Super Bowl, featuring the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. Torrey Smith, the young speedster wide receiver for Baltimore, celebrated a bit early due to his recent 24th birthday. As you can see from the above cake – he went all pro. It is really amazing what pastry chefs can do with fondant these days (even though I would always choose butter cream). Beautiful execution with tremendous detail (note Super Bowl logo on jersey). That said, Smith and his guests ate his shoulders and head in cake form. This seems more than a little strange to me. Maybe I’m a little old fashioned, but a cake should never resemble any part of the body. Just a good rule of thumb. Unless of course, you like hanging out in the Andes, or, mind taking home leftovers that look like this: H/t to USA Today for the tip, Smith’s Instragram page for the top photo, and Cake Wrecks to close it out. The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts JT Latest posts by JT (see all) Starbucks Enters New Beverage Territory - August 1, 2013 Dole’s Banana Dippers Look Promising - July 7, 2013 Time For Summer Food - June 20, 2013 Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
