Sneaker cakes have been becoming more and more popular over the years. Many of you will remember Sneaker Obsession’s “For the love of Cake and Sneakers” segment last September where we showcased 16 sneaker cakes ranging from various Air Jordan’s to an assortment of Nike model’s.
Made Fresh Daily, a bakery located in Atlanta, Georgia, was responsible for making a few of the of the cakes that were featured in our segment. Since than, the shop has been called upon to create many more sneaker cakes. One of their most recent requests came from a client whose son was celebrating his 16th birthday. They wanted to surprise him with a Air Jordan 9 cake using his name, Javetz, as the theme. Based on the White/Black colorway of the Air Jordan 9, Made Fresh Daily worked in several personalized details. For example, the standard “23” that appears on the heel of each shoe is replaced with 16, a nod to the young man’s age, and the edible shoe box label and Foot Locker receipt are both customized with the birthday boy’s name and age. The “Air Jordan” hit on the top of the tongue has already been customized, now reading “Air Javetz”. The cake itself is made from chocolate fudge and the shoe box is marble fudge, and like a cake should be, everything is 100% edible.
