I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of a good gimmick — especially when it involves buttercream frosting. And this Super Bowl season, there's nothing quite like a full field of cupcakes wearing Patriots jerseys, complete with a version donning a gray hoodie that's definitely channeling its inner-Bill Belichick.
Sweet bakery, with multiple locations throughout the Hub, will take orders for the limited edition "The Owner's Sweet" cupcake package through Feb. 3 (via phone, 617-247-2253 or e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.) It includes 73 cupcakes (one for every player on the team, complete with individual numbered jerseys), one Belichick cupcake, one football cupcake, and of course, a football field print tablecloth to further "wow" your guests. As if this wasn't enough:
Overboard? Perhaps. But can it provide enough sugar to get you through the game, regardless of the outcome? Ab-sooo-lutely.
At least we didn't suggest you try a mammoth meat stadium of your very own -- though we do think it would really whet our appetite for the cupcakes.
P.S. Cupcakes are also available at Sweet locations for a $4.25 a pop, if you want to play favorites.
