This cake just screams, "Pahk the cah in Hahvahd Yahd ." (Translation: Park the car in Harvard Yard). It says we drink "tonic" not "soda." It begs you to drink from the "bubblah" not the "water fountain." In short this cake celebrates many many wicked awesome things!
In New England you live and breathe by the ups and downs of the Sox and the Pats. Thankfully, there is a Dunkin Donuts on every corner! In New England you can enjoy a tasty Friendly's Fribble (an extra thick milk shake).
In New England if you have not enjoyed a Fluffernutter Sandwich, well, honestly, your youth has been misspent! As I explained to my southern born and bred friends this morning, the Fluffernutter is where it's at! It MUST be made on white bread, filled with a small shmear of peanut butter and a massive heaping of gooey sticky sweet marshmallow fluff!
This cake was ordered by a customer who is really and truly a proper southern woman for her husband's birthday! She wanted to celebrate his roots and incorporate a few New England favorites: the Red Sox, The Patriots, the Fluffernutter Sandwich, and Friendly's. I was stumped at first and then it hit me! They had to be all decked out in their sports gear sitting on a sandwich, it's just too cute!!! And of course, a proper southern lady never goes out without her pearls!!! And yes, those are lobsters on her skirt!
The cake itself? I almost forgot! This is the best part! Two layers of Buttermilk Vanilla Cake sandwiched with, wait for it... Peanut Butter Frosting and a layer of Fluff!!! The cake is covered with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and Topped with Rolled Fondant! The figures are sculpted out of sugar paste.
