Sometimes, after riding your hog along the open road, the spirit of a young James Dean bounding alongside you, you like to go home and bake a very elaborate birthday cake for your young child. At least, that’s what BakingShop seems to think.
What else could have prompted the creation of the Harley-Davidson cake decorating kit?
There is something charming about the notion of leather-clad bikers creating delicately decorated pastries. Each cake decorating kit includes a miniature plastic motorcycle (styles vary), two brushes, instructions and a Harley-Davidson logo.
It may seem contradictory, considering the rebellious image that Harley-Davidson tries to cultivate (it’s hard to imagine a biker in an apron) but there are probably plenty of young boys who’d appreciate a motorcycle birthday cake. A $72 price point seems a bit on the expensive side, but no doubt it will make some child’s birthday party heavenly in the way that only Hell's Angels can.
The Harley-Davidson wedding cake may not go over quite as well.
