Toscanini's takes the cake

Posted by Katie Johnston Chase May 8, 2007 10:13 AM

Everybody knows that Sweet -N- Nasty in Back Bay is a great place to go for erotic cakes (OK, maybe not everybody). But did you know that Toscanini's could make great bachelorette-party-worthy confections, too? I didn't. I attended such an event last weekend, and the ice cream cake from Toscanini's was the hit of the night. The cake didn't have a suggestive shape, there were no props sticking out of it, but it did have the filthiest phrase I've ever seen written in frosting. The woman who placed the order asked the people behind the counter to put the dirtiest thing they could think of on the cake, and they put the manager on the case. I can't replicate any part of his message here, but I can tell you that the bride-to-be gasped and slammed down the lid the second she opened the box. And then we all fought over which word we wanted on our piece. It made the belly dancer who came to give lessons seem positively tame in comparison.
