Trying to keep in the spirit of 85 years of Italian heritage AND birthday awesomeness, this Spaghetti Pot Cake was created to celebrate my father-in-law’s 85th birthday.
Ahhh That Amazing Sunday Gravy!
Even though 65 of his 85 years were spent in America, that long, beautiful Boot of Italy continues to stretch across the ocean remaining the homeland of his heart. What better way to celebrate the old school tradition of “Sunday Gravy” than with a Spaghetti Pot Cake!
The red velvet cake with white buttercream echoed the prominent colors of the spaghetti and gravy. Both the pasta and meatballs are fondant topped with strawberry puree. And that luscious strawberry fragrance hit you as soon as you entered the room.
Wait….Is that a Cake?
Everyone that walked past the cake did a double take with the same question: Is that a Cake? Indeed it is. It’s a cake designed to celebrate 85 years of an amazing Italian life lived spectacularly in America.
