Red Sox Topsy Birthday Cake

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.

Groom's Cake … Finished!

While I could sit here for at least a few paragraphs and detail every flaw that I made in the making of this cake (the perfectionist in me just won’t die!), I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves. The bride and groom loved it … and I was happily surprised to see the entire wedding was in the Red Sox theme. As an added bonus for me, the DJ gave me some giant compliments over the sound system before the bride and groom cut the wedding cake!
