Super Bowl Cake Strategies

So most of my regular readers know I’m not here to talk about the Super Bowl, but since football has been all over the news lately so I thought it was worth discussing.  Lots of grooms are into football, and as much as I like making sculpted helmets, a lot of times our clients are looking for something more economical.  A football field cake can show the groom’s love of his team while not breaking the bank.
