Sooper Cake for a Sooper Bowl

IT’S SOOPER

“What is it?” I asked a no-nonsense farm woman at the grocery store.  She glanced briefly. “A helmet.”

Two friends thought it was Louisiana. Which is nowhere near Indiana, New York, or New England. Maybe the mold was left over from Sooper Bowl XLIV–or the prior year’s Mardi Gras.

Or perhaps this baked good was outsourced to Indonesia where they don’t play football. I thought the (edible?) XLVI circle thing should be orient-ated 45 degrees counter-clockwise, but my sources tell me it’s good.  So if you lose your helmet, technically, you could wear this.

  1. Reminds me of the old Carvel ice cream cakes. Did you know of those?They had one shape that could either be “Fudgie the Whale” or “Santa Claus” depending on how you rotated it.

    • Funny, I use the word “product” a lot because, growing up, my friend’s brother referred to Carvel as “The Product.” There was a much-played Carvel ad on TV wherein the ice cream is coming out of a tube and Tom Carvel’s voiceover can be heard to say, “Look at that product!”
      The Product. My friend’s brother was a savvy nutter of a lad. And I think Tom’s clever ruse of Fudgie moonlighting as Santa should also be applauded.
