Aretha’s Hat – The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Aretha celebrated her 67th birthday in Detroit Sunday:

DETROIT The Queen of Soul can throw a party, and she clearly gets a kick over the worldwide attention over her famous gray felt Inaugural Hat.

To celebrate her 67 years on the planet, Franklin threw a party for 200 friends at Seldom Blues Saturday and the centerpiece was a cake that was a replica of her stylish gray-bowed chapeau, made out of yellow cake with buttercream frosting and fresh raspberries.

Guests dined on chef Jerry Nottage's famed gumbo, as well as on meat loaf prepared from one of Franklin's own recipes. . .

. . .The "Inaugural Hat" cake was made by cake designer to the stars, Sylvia Weinstock of New York. Weinstock also made tiny replicas of the hat cake, wrapped in a six-inch gift box that each partygoer received as a gift from Franklin. SOURCE
