I love baseball themed cakes … and I’m considering this one the first of the 2011 season! We delivered this peeking Mr. Met Groom’s cake this past Saturday to The Crystal Room in Staten Island, NY as a surprise to a Mets fan groom from his Yankees fan wife!
This cake was comprised of red velvet cake, filled and frosted with vanilla moussaline buttercream and decorated in fondant. The Mets hat on top was made of rice cereal treats and decorated in fondant.

This past weekend Sweet Element had the opportunity to deliver this Phillies & Army themed groom’s cake to Terrace on the Park in Queens, NY. The groom, as you might have guessed is a *huge* Phillies phan & is also a very accomplished military man – Green Beret, Ranger & West Point Instructor.
During the initial design consultation, the bride, who was ordering this cake as a surprise for her groom, emphasized that she really wanted the predominant cake design to revolve around the Phillies, but she also wanted to incorporate some army desert camo & logos around the sides, and a green beret instead of the baseball cap to the Phanatic to personalize the cake a bit more specifically for her groom. The small beer bottle in the Phanatic’s hand was also a small side request to showcase the couple’s love of beer!
The cake itself was red velvet (could there be any other flavor for a die-hard Phillies cake?), filled with cream cheese frosting, iced in vanilla moussaline buttercream & decorated in fondant & gumpaste. The camo band & logos were printed on frosting sheets.
