One of the nicest perks about being friends with a baker – is you know that the odds are highly in your favor of getting the gift of cake for your birthday!
This past weekend we headed up to CT to celebrate my friend Carrie’s birthday, and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to experiment with a topsy birthday cake. Since Carrie is a huge Boston Red Sox fan & is always on my case for making Yankees cakes (as I am a Yankees fan!), I thought it would be fitting for the theme of this cake to be the Sox.
The cake itself was chocolate, filled with peanut butter mousse & vanilla buttercream, frosted in vanilla buttercream & decorated in fondant.
